Hi there!

 

When you connect to a wireless network on a blackberry device, your data plan will not be used. :smileyhappy: Instead, it will use the WiFi signal. :smileyhappy:

I don't have to tell AT&T to add any data plans to use Wi-Fi, right? Thanks again.

Since the Blackberry devices are smartphones, a data plan is required. The plan is as low as $15 for 200MB/ monthly. :smileywink:

But as I mentioned before, when you connect to a Wi-Fi connection at home, public hotspot etc, your phone will use the Wi-Fi signal instead of your data plan. I hope that makes sense! I apologize if my previous post was confusing. :smileyhappy:

So I still have to pay in order to use the WI fI. i CAn't just punch the wireless key number in If someone is paying 15 bucks a month for a data plan do they get charged more everytime they use the Internet w/ o WiFi.Maybe I'm misunderstanding something here, but why I have free wi fi, if you have to pay to use it?

Wi-Fi is completely free of charge and you may use it as often as you'd like. :smileyhappy: I was adding that although you may use Wi-Fi, AT&T does require smartphones to have a data plan. This requirement was added a while ago. :smileywink:

If you are using your 200MB of data (no Wi-Fi), then you will not be charged more. You will pay $15 a month. :smileywink:

If you have a data plan, like the 200MB plan for example, and you connect to a Wi-Fi network, your blackberry will use the wifi signal and will not be charged. Your data plan usage will not be impacted at all. :smileyhappy:

Excuse if this has been asked before. Does anybody here use the Internet on their Blackberry via the Uverse Wireless Key? Do you have to pay for Internet usage on your wireless bill before you can use the Uverse Wireless Key?

 

Thanks in advance

I don't have a BB, but use the iPod Touch with UV Wi-Fi.  The Touch is like the iPhone except no phone or 3/4G.

 

You should be able to turn off the 3G and just use Wi-Fi?

 

It sounds like you want to avoid getting charged for data on your Wireless bill?

I have to keep the 3g on or else the phone won't work. So when it says ATT- 2WIRE 559 on top, I should be getting my Internet thru Wi Fi  only, right?

Hi, I'm currently in London for the next 2 months, and I got a cheap international phone, but I wanted to put the SIM card into my blackberry torch so I don't have to use a phone that looks like its from 1993. Is there an unlock code so that I can use a different SIM card? Please help!
