Access to Internet through Lap Top

Hello Blackberry Community:


I have been overseas for the last three years and things have really changed in the cell phone market.  I am in the process of trying to select the right phone.  I have a question pertaining to internet access.  If I have unlimited internet access and WiFi through my phone, along with a usb cable to connect to my computer, is there any reason for me to purchase a separate internet plan?  I know I must be missing something here--for example, do I only have internet access if I am in a WiFi spot?


I would appreciate any an all answers (and get that I am clearly ignorant about this technology).  Thank you.

Re: Access to Internet through Lap Top

Right now there is no BlackBerry that you can tether to your PC and talk on the phone at the same time. If that is not a concern for you then I would agree that there is no reason for you to have a seperate PC internet plan.
