Mobile internet help

    I'm looking to purchase a blackberry (possibly used) or some kind of means of accessing the internet on the go. I don't have a cell phone, and that's part of the reason for this purchase. I don't want a cell phone but I'd like to be able to contact my wife.

    Basically I'm just looking for a cheap way to browse the internet and send text messages without a cell phone.

    Any suggestions on what type of device I should buy and what type of plan would give me a cheap way of accessing the internet and sending texts?

    Seems like you're entering the 20th century, George.

    Sure. You can get it there. It's a big town.

    On. Sorry. Wrong mobile.

    If you want cheap, don't get an iPhone.

    To clarify, I have broadband at home. I just want to get something cheap (maybe used off ebay) that'll allow me to email/check scores/text message.

    What I don't want is to pay for a cell phone calling plan that will only be useful during the 1% of my life when I'm away from home/work/my wife and her cellphone. I don't need the phone, just the internet access.

    And if I could get a good enough device to allow me to watch my slingbox on the go, that'd be sweet.
