    I am about to have my 8530 flashed to MetroPCS. I heard about using Opera Mini to be able to use BBM. Does this work? If not, what does? I'd like to b able to BBM since all my friends use it. Can someone HELP ME pleeeeease?!?

    No matter what you hear, you can't use core applications (includes BBM) without BIS data. No work around

    call their customer service up and ask them about their data plans for blackberry. They should be able to tell you the cost.

    There was a promotion for metro pcs that gave you BIS and unlimited everything for 50 bucks for the 8530. That's what I have. Not sure if the plan is still 50 because the promotion on lasted till Jan 2nd and then is suppose to be 60 bucks now.
