Re: storm online account/email help???

I'm puzzled why someone would get a BlackBerry without a data plan?  Without the data plan it's just like any other phone.  In the US, Verizon specifically, you can't get a BB unless you also subscribe to the unlimited data plan. 

 

The cost is dependent on your carrier.  In the US (Verizon) it's $30/month.

You get the data plan the same place you get all of your services on your mobile phones and BB's...from your carrier. Take it into them and see what they will be willing to do for you.

 

Good luck and let us know!
