    for the curve (on ATT - since they are the only carrier in the US to carry it right now) is 29.99 for the Blackberry UNLIMITED data plan WITH a qualifying voice plan.

    Try pricing international BES coverage at $69/mo, and that's without voice or txt. Ha!

    $30 or $45/mo for BIS or BES isn't bad when you consider you are getting Best-of-Breed email on a phone. The phone requires RIM infrastructure to work WRT email, and part of that free ($10/mo ?) goes from the carriers to RIM.

    There are tons of ways to get $20/mo for data on Cingular, just none of them will give you the same email experience, sadly. Too bad too. It seems like a data plan cartel. But if you want to play, you have to pay!

    The Personal max plan is actually listed at $44.99, but you get a $5 "discount" if you have a voice plan making it $39.99 . . .

    Smile Re: Blackberry Curve rate plans?

    I pay $35/month for a Family/Friends plan with AT&T: 400 minutes, free LD, 12-month roll-over, and I pay $15/month for my wife's phone in the same pool. In our area that plan is no longer available, but I am grandfathered in (fitting, considering my advanced years). What I added when I got my 8300 was a $30/month plan for the "personsal" unlimited Email and Internet service. My total is $90/month. I am now blessed with a 2-year contract, so I must be happy!

    Salesman told me that if I were a business instead of an individual, the Email/Internet cost would be somewhat more ($40/month??).

    when t-mobile gets the curve it's going to be the same as all their other bb plans. 20$ will give you unlimited web and email, and in some areas you have the option of 20$ email and unlimited txt. 30$ monthly if you are on a bes.
    and those are plans added to a voice plan.. and it doesn't matter what rate plan you are on. also if you are on a myfaves rate plan unlimited txt is 10$ additional.

    voice plan means our monthly minuters. you can get a data plan only which is just the email web portion of it or you can get a voice and data which is minutes email and web. hope that helps

    Voice plan = regular phone plan. Lowest is 450 minutes w/rollover for $39.99. Gotta have that voice plan in place, then you get the $44.99 Personal max data plan with a $5 discount. Like you said: still works out to $80/month plus tax!
