Hi folks,

My bro mentioned that in order to use a BB on VF with data plan I may have to subscribe to a BB plan. I'm not entirely sure what a BB data plan is but first of all, can someone please confirm if this is true? If so, what are the differences between that plan and what I'm using now with my WinMo device? Even if I have a BB I probably won't require a push email but will use my gmail accounts instead.

Anyone out there using a Bold without push email but with gmail instead?

Cheers,
D.

Thanks - I've just read the specs of some BB and now it makes sense that one needs a BB plan. That's just made the choice a whole lot easier, pity though...
