    I am planning to get a BlackBerry 8320, and I am tempted to get Roger's new "BlackBerry Messaging Plan with Unlimited Incoming Minutes". The plan offers unlimited personal email and unlimited incoming minutes, but it requires a three-year commitment.

    I was also thinking about buying the device outright, either from Rogers or from another company (unlocked), and then getting a monthly plan from Rogers.

    Any thoughts?

    "BlackBerry Messaging Plan with Unlimited Incoming Minutes" ...
    The 8320 has joined the 8120 Pearl to support Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) which is marketed as TalkSpot.

    If you combine that plan with TalkSpot, $20 per month gets you unlimited Nation wide calling while in Canada. Unfortunatly, it does not apply to UMA calling from international locations.

    I was also thinking about buying the device outright, either from Rogers or from another company (unlocked), and then getting a monthly plan from Rogers.
    Unfortunatly, if you choose another carrier branded device (T-Mobile, O2, Orange), you can not use UMA.
