    Here's my situation. I'm a T-Mobile subscriber, minutes and text only. My current flip phone (not a smart phone) died so I had to get one pronto. A friend of mine had a T-Mobile Blackberry but has switched to another carrier so she gave it to me. Now I have a phone to use and I can connect to wi-fi at home and various other hot spots. But because my T-Mobile plan doesn't include internet use, will I get charged if I access the internet on my Blackberry?

    if you are over wifi then no you shouldnt. as for hotspots, unless its a subscription one, you should be ok.

    What would be the difference if I connect to the web via wifi or a non-subscription hotspot? Wouldn't they both simply be ways of me getting onto the internet? Unless one is trackable and the other isn't. Could you clarify?

    Some hotspots make you subscribe to their wifi to have access. I know at one point in time McDonald's did and I think Starbucks did.
