    I'm also interested in an answer to this.
    Blackberry data plan is 21 euros unlimited data while GPRS is 30 for 40mb only.

    There are many posts about this. If you have the BB plan all you have to do is go to Settings > General > Network > Edge and put the APN as wap.voicestream.com and the user/pass as guest/guest.

    hey

    I got the BB Plan (TMOBILE) in USA.

    59.99 unlimited data, 1000 min, and unlimited text.

    APN: wap.voicestream.com
    username/password: (leave blank)

    works great. still getting the internet i need and everything.

    someone did post that you will be able to use the T-Zones package with this to get internet and stuff, but Im not to sure, can someone confirm that?

    For 4.99 I wouldnt mind switching to T-Zones and still getting unlimited data

    Thanks

    in settings > general > network >edge change to

    wap.voicestream.com

    you dont need to fill in anything on the user name / password fields leave them blank. Erase the cingular information.

    I current own a blackberry on tmo and unlocked my iphone and put my tmo sim with the blackberry plan into the iphone.

    Youtube, weather, stocks and safari seems to all work including ota apptapp applications. No problem yet.

    There is a post with some hacks to enable T-Zones by editing some configuration files to allow the proxy the connection requires. I tried this out and it worked fine but the connection doesn't stay active like Edge does. Sometimes the beginning of loading web sites and your email can take 5-10 seconds before you even get any data transfered. I also had problems with YouTube in that 2/3 times I get an error when trying to play a video and the other time I have to wait forever for it to buffer before it will play. I ended up switching to the Total Internet plan instead because I find it faster than both the Blackberry and Tzones plans.

    I'm not positive but I have been told that the blackberry plan doesn't work on any carrier but T-Mobile because it uses the same APN as tmobiles internet but I could very well be wrong but I have heard that! So sorry for that news!
