If I cancel my BES (the extra $20 a month) will it affect my ability to send/receive emails and surf the web? I am no longer at a company where I need access to work-related emails. I only have an AOL and gmail account now, and want to be able to facebook and google. Thanks!
Nope - the Blackberry can handle regular internet on the Everything Data plans with no extras. AOL, GMail, internet use all included.
The BES addon is just for connecting through RIM to your Corporate BES server. Since you don't need that anymore, go ahead and contact Customer Care to remove it.
I did move your post over to the 'Plans' community so future customers can see this discussion too.
