    Hi Everyone First post so please be gentle. I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't find a 'final answer' anywhere. I have Opera Mini and followed directions from another site to gain internet access without a data plan.

    Will I be charged for usage?

    And how are you doing this?

    I believe it can be used with medianet. I gotta double check that when I get on my PC later and I will post the definate answer.

    Ok here it is. With a generic data plan which would be media net you can use a third party browser like Opera Mini. Without media net or a BB data plan, you will be charged up the ying yang.

    OK, I have exhausted myself searching for a way to get email and check the web on my 8700c without paying a $30 monthly charge to Cingulair/AT&T for BB Internet Service. Now I read here of a "generic" service (media net)that I can use through a 3rd party browser (Opera). Does this media net have a monthly charge? Will this avoid having to enroll with AT&T the BB Internet Service?
    W/O current internet service to my 8700c, do I download the necessary software on my desktop, and then load them onto my BB with the BB desktop manager? When I bought this phone I had no idea it would not provide access to the internet w/o an extra monthly charge. I am only interested in using the 8700c when I am close to a wireless network such as the one at libraries, and my home. Not really a "quick question". sorry.
