@harshal welcome to BB. 1) get yourself the 599 unlimited plan if you are not working for a company that has a BBM internal structure. It has 10 email accounts and all the internet and IM you want. You have to walk into a store the call-in doesn't work for this plan.
2) BB only saves to internal memory. Unless its secondary data from an app. As most applications are tightly integrated into either interface of messaging applications. And don't worry it has an excellent memory cleanup and recovery app.

@compenn I haven't found it so far. You can view connection info though by pressing 'C' while browsing.

599 unlimited plan sounds good. better than paying 6999 upfront which effectively works out to 583. thanks a lot. i shall check with vodafone soon.

guys,

i have 1 doubt. i have configured my 2 email accounts on my Bb8520. everything works fine, but when i compose a new email, the signature that I have configured on the BlackBerry Internet Service log in does not appear there. Everytime i log in to the web account i can see the signature there.

I hope i have been able to explain my problem.

Even though you cant see it, the signature will still be attached and the recipient would see it. Try sending a mail to another id of yours and checking it on a computer.

I heard that Black Berry supports both GSM+CDMA, May I know which model is that & price of the mobile?

Planning to use both Airtel and Indicom services.

Blackberry offers devices in both CDMA and GSM. But it does not offer both (CDMA + GSM) in a single device.

The World Phone (I think 8830) is exactly that.

Check out on rimweb.in. You will get the specs as well as the prices. Remember the grey imports cannot be set up for Blackberry services, otherwise work fine. CDMA may not be possible on Tata.

I guess they have two models, one is world edition which is older one and the new one is BlackBerry Tour 9630.

But you can use only one at a time, eithier CDMA or GSM. Best suited for international roaming.

Precisely. You cannot have both CDMA and GSM active at the same time.
