Yes, you need a BlackBerry data plan to use the internet. The cellular network handles phone calls and text messages only. Everything else is data.

Most phones get their data from their carrier. With BlackBerrys you get the data from RIM through your carrier. The good news is that you don't need a separate smartphone data plan, just the BlackBerry plan.

But does it cost money if I don't go on the browser or the apps? Just if I have it turned on?

You need to turn mobile network on to receive calls and texts.

In addition to the above, if you want to be certain you do not use data, disable data in device options under mobile network.

If you don't have a data plan and you accidentally use the browser or any other data service you will be charged on a per/kb basis.

Under the Mobile Network Options, turn the Data Services to "OFF".

Also, if I turn the mobile network off and only wifi is on, would it charge me money to go on the browser?

Normally you need a BlackBerry data plan to use WiFi. The data you use over WiFi won't cost you anything and won't count against your monthly data allotment, but you need the BlackBerry data plan on your account to get access.

Oh because I don't have a blackberry data plan, but I still get access to browser, but it's good it won't cost anything.
