I just got the pearl 8130, in an upgrade of my phone but not my plan. I have Sprint, and I have an old employee plan that allows me to pay less than $30 and get basically everything Sprint had to offer - one to two years ago, that is. Now, with this Blackberry, I'm not sure how my Vision plan is compatible (if at all) with my new phone.

So my question is this - is it necessary that I upgrade to a plan with the Blackberry Internet Service (nearly tripling my bill in doing so), or is there a way I can keep my old plan and still get more out of my Pearl?

Yes you need a BlackBerr data plan. Without it you will not be able to get email.

Re: Internet

I would have asked Sprint initially, however I wanted an impartial set of opinions/solutions before I went to Sprint, as of course the answer would be to go with the more profitable plan.
