    Silly question, i dont understand how a blackberry works.

    Do you get given a new email address or are you able to use an existing one, ie my current work one???

    I dont see why not - you cant really do much damage (ie downloading the interweb). You'll just be able to browse, email, chat, etc - quicker

    The data plan makes it particularly appealing.

    I doubt it. TBH if you're looking to game the system you might be disappointed - it's pretty much locked down in that regard.

    you cant really download email attachments on the bb. at best you'll be displayed your email attached documents as an image that the device needs to retrieve from the bb server. there might be a java email client out there to replace the builtin one.
