	I'm sure that your provider can do a better work at it, just call them and 
ask. I called Orange this afternoon an, at least here in Spain, the plan 
names don't matter. You can get the Blackberry Foo and Windows Mobile Bar 
plans without a specific device, they don't care. In fact, they have a 
interesting Blackberry labeled plan which offers unlimited POP and IMAP 
traffic to your server (you need to give them the ip when you sign the 
contract). I've started thinking of setting up a proxy listening on port 110 
and configuring the Neo for using it for all the internet traffic[1], so I 
can get unlimited internet access for 12 €/mo.
