    Monthly Costs

    Advertisement



    I just ordered my storm today and I was wondering if it would cost the same as my Curve does monthly. Right now I am on a family plan and I pay $20 a month for my minutes. I pay $5 for unlimited texting and then I pay $30 for my unlimited data plan for a total of $55 a month. Will the Storm be the exact same for me or is there anything extra that I am missing?

    Actually if you want vznav (the GPS from Verizon) it is going to cost 9.99 for it.

    Yeah, I have no need for it though so I won't be getting it.

    It's the same for Telenav on Alltel. If you use it, it's worth it. If not, not. I wish it wasn't extra but they've got to make a buck on whatever they can. It DOES work well though.

    No way is it worth it..... That is a feature that was built INTO the blackberry by RIM for free for use with 3rd party applications.

    Do they charge you to use the backlight? No. Then why should they be able to charge you for GPS when it uses a built-in chip??

    I completely agree, it's very stupid.

    GPS uses your allocation from your data plan ....if you have unlimited, you're good.

    I have an unlimited data plan are you sure it's included if you have an unlimited data plan or will the unlimited data plan cost more for the Storm in particular because of the GPS being included?
