    Cheer up people. I went to Egypt in september and forgot to turn off data roaming. Jus got slapped with a Ł700 (1123usd) bill from Orange UK. I feel sick but only have myself to blame :-(

    TMobile did that for me once also when I was a texting addict. I went way over my limit when I was on a family plan with my ex. He called and got me switched to the Unlimited Messages bundle I have had for the last 3 years now.

    true verizon is getting an extra 20 bucks out of me but i thought it was kinda cool the way they handeled it.if they hadn't contacted me i would have probably upgraded anyway when i got my huge bill.
    This happened to me but with texting. I went over about $300-worth. Needless to say the at&t rep had never seen a kid go over 3000 texts. I think that's why he gave me unlimited texting and took the charges off my bill =]

    We are with att and our bill is always different. Our bill has gone up since I got my blackberry. We expected that cause I got the BB plan but it seems like every month they find a way to charge is for somethng different.

    Suddenly i don't feel so bad spending 100 a month.... But you guys in the US get unlimited Data. I'm very jealous.
    I pay an extra 30$ to get 6GB of data (and that was a promo! it's no longer available)

    I am also with AT&T, but our phone bill doesn't change from month to month like yours apparently does. I think you should go and talk to them again, perhaps even going to the store, and discuss the options that you have with them, and possibly change it up a little, cos my wife and I both have a BB, with unlimited data plan, no MMS or SMS, just email (which is a part of the data plan), we also have family talk with 450 minutes a month. We only pay $140 approx every month.

    I think we will. One month it'll be around $130 and the next month it'll be $170. Not sure where they're adding on things but somethings not right

    Don't worry. I think I pay about $120 a month for my blackberry. Pretty much is constant. I'd rather go without new pair of boxers then to cheap out on my blackberry plan. LOL

    About... Taxes turn out to about 20%. Florida state taxes are 6% but everyone knows that's not all you pay. Sometimes I get hit for some 411 calls and stuff because my girl doesn't realize she has the internet on her phone that can search for these things, lol

    Don't think I've seen any Sprint bill breakdowns . . .
    I have the BB8830 and my husband has the Palm Centro.
    1500 shared minutes, nights start at 7pm, calls to other Sprint users are free and unlimited messaging and data. Normally $129.99 but I get a 15% discount.
