Funny story, not related to BB and not meaning to hijack the thread...but....I have an all data aircard that I use for work/travel with my company, and somehow I got put on the "100mb" plan instead of the unlimited.
I used over 1000000 kb in data that month, resulting in over a $7000 bill!!
The rep said to frame it thats the highest he's ever seen....then credited the usage....and put me on the right plan!
LOL not related but FUNNY....you shoulda seen me when I opened THAT bill!
When I first got my Berry I thought the data plan was high, and I wasnt sure if I wanted to keep the phone and pay for the plan. Well a year later and I would pay double if I had to, I have really become addicted to my Berry and dont know how I went without it for so many years.
I'm glad we finally have that plan with bell mobility here in canada...its only 5 days into the new billing cycle and I"m already at 19mbs, Im not sure why but I must be keeping busy...last month I used 60! thank god for unlimited!
I took the unlimited because I had no idea if 50 Mb would be enough. I planned not be a heavy user, but have found that it is pretty easy to be addicted and use quite of bit of data. Rather play it safe than to have to call and complain about a big bill. Oh, since I enjoy the maps while I am on the train to locate where I am at when I am lazy, that in itself eats the data. Get the unlimited and sleep easy at night not knowing if you went over your plan.
i would never even think of activating my berry without an unlimited data plan. verizon requires you to choose the BIS or BES data plan which are both unlimited so not much to worry about there, but still...imagine that bill...
perfect, that answered my question. I have the unlimited everything for voice/text, and i know they forced me to add the data plan, so i was wondering if it was unlimited too. thanks!
I've never had an unlimited txt plan. I pay for 500 txt messages/month, and I've never used even close to that number. (obviously not a txt fanatic) But I do appreciate having an unlimited data plan. Even at $30. Now if I could just find a good weather program.
This is a great post. There are people every single day on here that want to know if they'll need data or who don't want to get data. I just don't understand why anyone would get a phone and not get data? That's like buying a Lambourghini and only using it to listen to the radio - you gotta get out and DRIVE it!
