    Question Which Tmo plan do I need for my 8100?

    Advertisement



    Ok, so what I want is, basically, the ability to use email, so that i can send/receive email from my work (my boss has a personal blackberry too, and sending emails of things that happen on the job is easier than taking a picture via camera and walking it over to him).

    So which plan do I need to select? Currently, I have a 19.99 plan for unlimited text/media, which I used on my old regular cellphone. I still kept that plan service because I text an average of 4,000 - 5,000 texts a month.

    However, I haven't been able to receive picture messages, and so I'm guessing that I'll need some data plan to obtain that ability.

    Again, so which one should I select? There's one that says email, but my gut is saying that the 19.99 unlimited is what I'm looking for. The last one for 30/month seems too much, and i dont think my company has whatever the enterprise is, we all have blackberry's, but it's only because of personal preference, and we bought them on our own, not for the company.::

    Also, sorry in advance, new to the site and just saw the Tmo section, I'm guessing this might have been better suited there.

    I Think but am not to sure... Newbie my self but the BB unlimited addon is what ive been using, it lets me send and recive emails perfectly fine, but im not to sure if you need an upgrade of service to use your work email address. I would go with the BB unlimited, but thats just me.

    Welcome. If I was in your shoes I would go with the BB unlimited add on for 19.99 and a unlimited text message plan. I don't use text messages enough to justify the flat rate. So, I simply have the unlimited data plan.Excellent service for the money. This of course comes with unlimited emails and internet use on your BB. Another benefit included in the data plan usage is the ability to use your phone as a modem for your laptop for internet access where you have tmo coverage. Call tmo to do this setup. Take care and welcome to the BB family ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    If you're going to be texing that much, you're going to want to get the unlimited text plan as well which is 14.99 which includes picture messages.

    I am also on TMO, I would opt for the BB unlimited. Depending on if you are on a family plan you can add unlimited text for everyone for the 19.99. If you you add the 14.99 for yourself keep an eye open, TMO runs promos where you can switch and add the new lower price. my friend has unlimited text with them on his phone and sends 100s of text a week. Yoou might find you text less too because your email from the blackberry can be sent to other peoples cell phones.

    Depending on your voice usage TMO also offers a BB Minutes and More...I think the cheapest is $59.99 and you get:

    1000 anytime Mins (No free N&W)
    BB Data Plan (unlimited email and data)
    Unlimited SMS and MMS

    In any event you want a BB Data plan and at $19.99 it is the cheapest I know of in the industry...

    Have Fun and let us know if we can help!
