Do You Have A Good Data Plan?
Next, let me offer you a little newbie advice. For unknown reasons, some people purchase Blackberry phones, but don’t add data plans to their service or, they’ll add data plans, but don’t opt for unlimited data. Big newbie mistake. See, a Blackberry’s best function is that it sends and receives email with ease. Without data, you’re missing the whole point. Not having data on your Blackberry, is like having a computer without an internet connection. Sure, your computer can create documents or allow you to play a few games, but compare these to what you can do with a computer that has a web connection and…well, there is no comparison.
While you definitely want to have a data plan for your Blackberry, you may also want to strongly consider an unlimited data plan. See, aside from being connected to several email accounts, you’re also going to want to access the web or use applications that rely on web access. I would imagine you could be thrifty and do so on a very limited basis with a limited plan, but living with those kinds of boundaries would also limit your entire Blackberry experience. After all, you probably purchased this device because of the great things you heard a Blackberry can do. Well, without data, you’ve got nothing more than a sleek looking PDA in your hands. And without unlimited data, it’s like buying a Porsche, but only driving it at 15 mph on side streets twice a week. Not a whole lot of fun, which is the half the point of buying the car in the first place, right? Trust me, newbie, a Blackberry with an unlimited data plan is truly the next best thing to carrying a laptop in your pocket. Really.
