Default Can Someone Fill Me In?

Please Login to Remove!

I have the Blackberry Pearl 8130. I have satellite internet at my house, and can set up a wireless network. If I set up a wireless network, can I use my blackberry to browse the internet for free? Or will I still be charged?

Also, if I went to a place like Starbucks could I use it for free there??

Thank you.

The 8130 does not have WiFi in it, so you will not be able to use your home wireless network or Starbucks.

Starbucks... no. They use T-Mobile Hotspots, so you'd need to pay to use their WiFi network.
Other places, such as Panera Bread, offer free WiFi. You could use those.
