REASON 1:

BLACKBERRIES SUCK IN THE FIRST PLACE. NO REASON TO INVEST ANY MONEY IN THEM.

REASON 2:

IF YOU HAVE A MOM THAT HAS A BLACKBERRY STORM WITH THE DATA PLAN AND WANTS TO GET RID OF IT, AND YOU LOST YOUR LG CHOCOLATE, YOU MIGHT AS WELL TAKE HER BLACKBERRY AND PUT UR NON-DATA PLAN ON IT.

REASON 3: WHEN YOU FIND A BLACKBERRY ON THE STREET AND YOU DON'T NEED A FORM OF MOBILE(SLOW ***) INTERNET, YOU CAN JUST PUT UR REGULAR PHONE + TEXTING PLAN ON IT.
