    Hi all.

    This is my first time on the forum and would appreciate some help. I've still got 1 year of school left and then I'll try to find a job. Whatever company I end up working for will probably give me a Blackberry as a benefit.

    But my personal cell phone plan is up and I'd like to get a blackberry (sorta like a toy for this one year before I graduate).

    I want a blackberry for its cool design, pda functions like calender etc. If wifi wasn't an option I would get the data plan. But apparently the Blackberry 8800 series has a wifi option. My school and home is fully wifi integrated.

    Would it make more sense for me to just get the phone, save $30 bucks a month, and just use free wifi?

    Thanks!

    Yea. You're going to find not being able to use the full features of your bb all the time depressing. I didn't have my data plan for 2 days, and I couldn't deal with it anymore. Your going to want to use your bb anywhere and everywhere.

    i dont think you would be able to use push email BIS bc that requires data through RIM. I have to say on my IPod Touch i have wifi access everywhere, and if i have wifi on my BB i prob wouldnt have data either.
