    Tmobile-unlimited everything and. 2500 min a month voice plan. Bill runs about $140 month. Only thing I have actually paid for was an extra case and a usb cable. A program has to be really good and worth the price for me to even consider it.

    When sona launches if they don't offer a free trial I will prob purchase that even if just for a month to test it. Want to see if it will be a subscrition only service or if it will be able to run videos off of like cnn and whatnot.

    Re: Cost of Services

    I have 400 voice minutes $39.99, Unlimited Blackberry Internet $19.99, 400 text messages $4.99 and I share voice minutes with my mother and sister so they charge $10 per additional line $20 my bill is usually around $95-$105 dollars a month after taxes. We use tmobile to tmobile a lot we're not big voice minute users sometimes we give them back over 300 minutes a month! I've been making a purpose of start using as many minutes as I can so I give them back very few of their minutes!

    Re: Cost of Services

    I can't say for certain just yet since we switched plans this month and Cingular's "prorating" is expensive. However, it looks like it will be just around $300/month for two Blackberries on unlimited plans sharing a pool of 3000 minutes (rollover, unlimited n&w, unlimited m2m, blahblahblah).

    If in Canada...use Rogers!

    $40 = 750 day + no limit evenings & weekends, 6 pm to 7 am

    $45.60 = "unlimited" BlackBerry (where "unlimited" is capped @ 25 MB)

    $10 = 2500 send SMS, no limit receive

    $5 = call display

    $3 = who called (awesome! When phone is off or busy, the network records call display of callers and sends a text message with the details. I hate both voicemail and call waiting and have neither, so this is the perfect add-on)

    TOTAL (with occasional roaming long distance & tax)

    = ~ $130 / month.


    --but that's on the expense account, so I don't actually "pay" for it--

    Re: Cost of Services

    My bill is usually around 165.00 per month.

    I have two lines through, that share my minutes.

    My line has 800 national anytime minutes, unlimited (7pm-7am) night & weekend minutes, unlimited mobile-to-mobile minutes, and unlimited incoming minutes. I also have 250 outgoing (free incoming) text messages per month. For a data plan on my line, I have unlimited data access--I think the data plan adds about 40 bucks a month to my plan.

    My son's line shares those 800 minutes and has my "unlimited" promos also. He also has a 250 per month text messaging plan on his. I am thinking about paying the ETF to shut off his line, since I started up his contract last summer for his vacation out of state with my mom. 8 year-olds just don't use their phones much. He does take his with him when he visits his Dad though; and it makes me feel better that he has it then.

    And then taxes are pretty high on my bill also.....
