    BB Messenger does use the data plan. 1.5mb will be used up pretty quickly if you are getting email also.....

    1.5mb is very little of data, I can use 1.5mb in under 10 minutes. With 1.5mb you pretty much can only get some emails, and that is.

    I think you should get the unlimited, because as soon as you get addicted, you will need to have the unlimited~!

    Wow that's crazy... I have an unlimited data plan with att for $30/m. I couldn't imagine using only 1.5mb on a blackberry... I even used well over that on a non-pda. I used at least 5mb a month on a regular cell phone easy and have probably used well over that on the week I've had my blackberry so far.

    I highly suggest you get an unlimited plan...you will burn the 1.5MB pretty quick. Once you start on the BB, it's hard to get off!

    Hmmm... My unlimited data plan with AT&T is $44.00. Where did you get one for $30.00?

    ... in the store last week when I bought my Berry.

    It's also listed as the standard price for the plan when I login to my account online and view available features. You might want to check out the 'Rate Plan & Features' section of your account online, then head to 'Add/Manage Features' to see if it's listed at a lower price there.

    I lowered the price of my unlimited MEdia Net (on my phone prior to the Berry) from $20 a month to $15 a month just by randomly checking my features and pricing one day. Do this often! You won't get moved to newer, lower, pricing if they drop their prices on any service you subscribe to unless you do it yourself!

    If you can't find the cheaper pricing online, try calling customer care and asking. $30 a month is the new advertised rate for their 'BlackBerry Personal' plan which includes unlimited data. The price listed on the att website prior to logging in is $35 a month, but they drop the extra $5 if you have a voice plan, too.

    Thanks Miakeru! That's why these forums are priceless. Called AT&T and they changed my plan from $45.00 to $30.00 and backdated it to 1/29. Awesome!!
