Hi my name is Relu , i`m from Romania and i will give you a guide how to use your Blackberry handset without BIS (blackberry internet services) or BES (blackberry entreprise services) data plan. First of all, Blackberry is a business phone known for it`s functionality not for entertainment or media . Those phones are famous for they internet and email live im "push".
Now ,some of you woders : What is push mail ,push web browser ...push im...?
Push (example email push) instead of inquire electronic mailbox for new mails (every time you want to check your email you have to pres send /recive button) ,those new mails from the email box are delivered to your handset in real time. That`s why blackberry is a business class phone because you recive information very quicly and information equals money.(it`s about mobility)
