    I do not have a blackberry contract but i have a 3G contract with 500MB data.

    I m planning to buy a blackberry, can i use the BBmessenger and Email function with my actual plan or I must change to a BB contract?

    You need a blackberry data plan otherwise any of the data features will not be usable. Without changing to a blackberry bis data plan you won't have access to email, browser, bbm, app world etc.

    You would need to switch to a blackberry specific data plan (BIS). You don't have to wait for your contract to be over to switch to the new plan, though. It can be done at any point in your contract.

    because I can't switch to a BB plan, too expensive in Hong KOng.

    Can i still use the broswer/GPS of the BB if i use an iphone data plan?
    even thugh i know i cant use some stuff like BBmessenger or push email.

    thank you by the way

    If you select a model with Wifi, you can use the Browser while in a Hotspot. GPS is dependent on both BIS and carrier support.
