    need help with negotiating a good deal for new bb plan

    Advertisement



    Hi,
    I am completely new to blackberries and the contracts. I'm in Canada and have had a cell phone (on the Fido City plan with unilmited talking minutes all the time) and will need a substantial voice plan with my bb (1000 min plus) for work and personal. So I know I'm in for an expensive bb plan.

    So... I'm looking at Rogers and wondering where can I negotiate extras? Since it looks like I'll be spending about $140 - $160 before taxes, activiation fees, monthly fee etc, I want to see if they'll throw in the activation fee and call display at least. Can I push for more? What's reasonable and what do you recommend? I will need a carrying case thing, a handfree set, a charger.... so much $$$$!

    Thanks!!

    I didn't know that you could negotiate on set prices.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    Ecda. It never hurts to ask for extras, but don't be surprised if you don't get any. Good luck.

    They should be able to throw in any activation fees and maybe a discount on the device but I can't imagine them lowering a monthly fee for service... At best they might could wave a months service or something like that.

    Good luck and let us know how things work out for you.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ the carry case and charger should already be in the box, along with a wired handsfree earpiece. As far as extras, yeah mate I have to agree with everyone else, best of luck!
