9320 Not able to send email with out using data ?? my old 8130 could

Hello all.

I recently  purchased a 9320 to replaced the 8130 (I lost) . It seems that 9320 is not able to send an email without using DATA.  When using my old  8130 I had the option of sending "text"  messages as an Email. That phone was on the most basic voice & text plan with no data. It was very cost effective and convenient.   Is there a setting or some other option I am missing on my 9320 ?? I just assumed that being a newer blackberry  this feature would still be available ?

Thank you.

No, you need a special data plan to have your email work on your 9320.

Thank you mondi21 for the answer.

 

Does anyone know why my 8130 could send an Email (as a text) using no data?  What is this feature called ?  Was the 8130 the only phone in the blackberry line up that had this feature?  

 

Thank you.
