    Mine is similar to Erica's;
    Blackberry unlimited
    300 Text Messages (free, grandfathered in)
    no minutes (I would need to use 150min/mo. @ $.20/min. to justify the extra service plan. I have a phone my employer pays for, for calls)
    Total is around $30-50/mo. Taxes are tied to minutes used.

    Nothing, if you have a package that includes unlimited data. I don't know why it is like that, but Rogers in Canada has an "unlimited" BB data plan that is capped at 25MB.

    That's not unlimited.

    Re: Cost of Services

    I have Blackberry Minutes & Mail BIS - 59.99 - inlcudes 1000 voice minutes, unlimited text messages, unlimited data, and unlimited email. I get a discount for where I work, which generally matches the taxes, so my bill is about 60$ a month. This does not include any MMS messges.

    Re: Cost of Services

    Fair and Flexible 400 - $36 (Nextel network, Sprint plan)
    Unlimited email and web - $50
    Unlimited Telenav - $10
    Insurance - $5
    Taxes - $10

    $110/month more or less. This thread makes me feel much better. I've heard so much talk about how expensive Nextel is. From what I see here, what I pay is pretty much in the mainstream. My BB is also my primary phone.

    I pay $0 a month for unlimited everything. Part of the perks of working for a phone company

    $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--
    I can't believe that anyone would recommend Rogers with that 25Mb cap on the "unlimited" data.
