    Default Blackberry and AT&T service - CTI

    Anyone know if Blackberry EDGE network from AT&T works at CTI?

    Any idea on cost? I have international calling but wanted to know if Blackberry features are available?

    Not that I want or need to be that connected, I use my BB phone for games, sports, news etc. My high tech entertainment.

    Well I have an iPhone so I can tell you my experience. It works! To use it just as a phone, receiving calls and texts is no different than your regular plan. To make calls or send texts there is an international rate but it's so cheap I didn't even notice it when my bill came. Just call AT&T from your phone and they can tell you what it is. I called them on my way to the airport to make sure I didn't need to do anything special and I didn't. (When you turn your phone on in Jamaica, it will connect to the Digicel network.)

    But to use it as anything other than a phone, it will cost you more money to roam while searching for a wireless network or the 3G network. So I turned all of these features off when I was there (location services, data push and wireless network). You can still play games though. Hope this helps! BTW, you will LOVE CTI!!
