    How does blackberry internet differ from that of a regular cell phone?

    I have Verizon and am confused on how blackberry's work versus regular cell phones. If you turn off internet access on a blackberry, you cannot make phone calls or text messages. Why is this? Does their internet function on a different frequency? Can anyone explain how a blackberry works?

    From bb's supportforums.com:

    Simultaneous voice and data is not supported on the Verizon network.

    In addition, you are not able to turn off the data package because Verizon will not allow it.

    I'm guessing by the last word you typed "Ood" that your browser did indeed crash.

    If you are planning to buy a BB then be sure to buy BB services along. Without that BB is just an ordinary phone. But when you have the BB services you can message anyone with a BB Pin anywhere across the world without charge. Can have full access to your mails and many more features are included.

    I know in certain countries they will only allow you to use BlackBerry services if you have a BlackBerry device.
