Default I have unlimited social networking... is there any way to forward e-mail to these?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,

on my new bold I have a student plan that has unlimited social networking.
I usually use wifi, but my school has wifi that does not let blackberries/iphones on so can't really use internet at school on my phone.

I sometimes have urgent emails to check, and cannot afford extra 10-15 dollars a month for a data plan. Is there any way to forward e-mails to one of the social networking things (like fb, twitter, etc) to read the e-mails?

thanks in advance!

If you cannot afford the data plan that a BB requires, you might think about getting a different device.

I dont want to discourage the original poster but the phone is limited mainly to SMS text and voice with out the BB Data Plan. The carriers do offer student discounts.

akos, its Rogers Blackberry social networking plan, gives them access to BBM, facebook, twitter but not internet browsing or email.
I don't know how they implement it, but they do have it.

You can't get around not having a BlackBerry data plan and use email. Forwarding to Facebook won't work.

NO EMAIL WITHOUT A BLACKBERRY DATA PLAN.
