    Welcome to CrackBerry.

    In order to use pushed email, BlackBerry Messenger, Internet Browser and most third party applications, you will need BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS).

    Your carrier bundles BIS with a data plan. That is the critical software that makes BlackBerry work.

    ok i'm sorry, but i'm not good at phones and stuff.

    when you mean DATA PLAN, does it mean ANY interent service, or one speacially for my blackberry that i should ask my carrier for?

    You need to have BIS or BES. If you do not need to connect to company email/calendars etc, you will need BIS which is the individual plan. Check with carrier for cost, but here at Verizon it's 29.99 a month.

    BlackBerry Messanger is only for chatting to other blackberry users via device PIN numbers. I see you mention MSN, you would have to use another messanger to use that.

    No worries, you will get the hang of it quickly.

    Orange - BlackBerry

    BlackBerry Internet Solution plan only

    17 6 MB 25 text messages 2 per MB

    The plan includes 6 Mb which is plenty for the intended use.
