    What kind of experience should I expect if I use a BB on a phone line that has a iphone package? WIll it work? I know i wont get email right on the spot as with a BB plan.. but I have to keep the iphone package in place for a few months until i can get out the grace period to switch it. Will this work? and if there anything I would need to do?

    Very limited. You will be able use the browser but not bbm or email or gps(if it even has it). The problem is that blackberry requires a specific data plan (BB data). however the iPhone is versatile meaning if you switchin you plan to a Blackberry plan you should be able to use that same plan on the iPhone.

    You can use a third party email client such as logicmail or the gmail app to handle email over tcpip without a blackberry plan. It's not as well integrated as the native email, but it should work.

    I don't think the regular browser will work, but if you can find a way to install opera or bolt, you can browse without a blackberry plan.
