    Hi I'm new here and was wondering if you guys could help me. I've been thinking about getting a 8820(i have att) because I think it would be really neat to have WiFi on a handheld device. I can afford one initially but I'm a little worried about the monthly rate. I have just a 200 texts a month plan right now. Do I HAVE to get a data plan with my blackberry? I really just want to use the WiFi since I'm living at college right now and wifi is everywhere.

    Thanks in advance!

    I may be wrong, but if your carrier is AT&T, you cannot use your WiFi device without a data plan. Look here:

    The 8820 would be perfect. A data plan is not needed to utilize your school's wifi, only AT&T's hotspots.

    The only thing is that with a BB, you may want to text more. Unlimited is $15 and 1500 I believe is $10 more.
