Best no contract plan for BB10
i have a PB since they were introduced and a BB8530 with Virgin Mobile. No contract, just month to month. When BB10 becomes available I want to purchase a new BB phone. I dont believe I will be able to use it with Virgin Mobile, as they only have their service available on a very limited number of phones. I plan to buy the phone out right and will be looking for a good, no contract, plan to use with it. Does anyone have any suggestions. I am in the USA. Thanks

There is a difference between "prepaid" vs "month to month".
You can buy a BB10 device outright (probably 600 dollars or so) from a carrier like AT&T. By doing so you dont have to sign a 2yr contract and will pay "month to month" as long as you want with no commitment.
The 2yr contract is only required if you buy the phone at the cheaper subsidized price (usually 200-300).

Sorrry i did not mean to talk down.
Just wanted to make sure.
Anyway, no contract plans from the big carriers are the same as their "contract" plans.
As of right now, Sprint has the best bang for your buck, not sure if thatll be the same once BB10 arrives.

Your best option is likely to be Simple Mobile, which is a bring your own device MVNO (The phone has to be an unlocked GSM device or a T-Mobile device, as they use T-Mobile's network.). I dumped Virgin Mobile a year ago for Simple Mobile as I wanted to upgrade to a newer BlackBerry and Virgin Mobile seems to favor Android devices and now the iPhone (Plus you're locked to their network as they make it very tough to remove the SIM card from their phones.) over BlackBerry. I pay $50/month for unlimited everything (minutes, texts, data) with no 4G cap (My current BlackBerry isn't a 4G device though.).
SIMPLE Mobile | Unlimited BlackBerry Plans
I know that T-Mobile offers a BYOD service as well, but their $50 unlimited plan caps 4G at 100MB (For $10/month more the 4G cap is 2GB.).
