    I think it's better to compare this one with the BEL+SMS+WEB Smart 100 from vodafone.

    And vodafone has a datalimit while t-mobile gives unlimited data with a Fair Use Policy.

    But thanks for your input! Updated the first post.

    Thanks for the Renewed Insights. I really think it will be worth 15,- a year for using Internet when Travelling (during the Holidays).

    Also you get 1000MB data which I won't consume within a month (300MB might be critical).

    I think I like those "B+S+W Smart" Contracts!

    I just can't get around that 'unlimited SMS'-thing... who needs SMS when you have BBM

    NB: Will update with Hi-contracts later today.

    I think it's their way of lowering the Data Overload on their Data Servers. You can also think of it this way: "Who needs BBM when you can Text anyone for Free?" SMS would still be Faster and more Stable dan BBM, especially when the Coverage in your area is low...

    I think that unlimited SMS thing is just a marketing stunt.. People choosing for B+S+W Smart are usually the people who use WhatsApp or Skype.

    That will only work if both of you have B+S+W Smart.
    Or if you have B + S + W Smart and the other one has Hi Messaging contract.

    (which is great.. free Texting between different platforms will be a lot easier

    Sending BBM text messages only will not get you anywhere near any datalimit Remember that BlackBerry compresses all data.

    I think I'll pass up on the 'Smart' and just get a regular B+S+W 200. I'm on wifi most of the time anyway (Home, parents, in-laws, work, all Wifi ).

    The idea off having "Unlimited" Data while I'm on Holiday (which is definatly Less than 60 days a year) and also having no extra Costs on Calling or Texting while on Holiday will definatly saves me more than the 15,- a year they charge me with the Smart Contract.

    You even can use your Navigation Apps without the concern you're getting charged for that use.

    For example: I went 2 weeks on Holiday this summer and it costed me 12,- and that's because I didn't reply on any text, only made short phonecalls and where not able to use Internet. When I'd had the Smart Contract, I'd wouldn't have to worry about anything for only 3,- extra, that's the Price of 1.5 Daily Data Bundles.

    It's definatly worth it to me =).

    I'm glad I got a new Vodafone BSW 300 SIM only contract right before the 1st of August. Which means 300 minutes/sms and 1GB data including BIS for 20 euro a month the first year, 30 euro a month the second year and 35 euro after the contract period. Only downside is having to pay full retail price for the 9900, but I'm OK with that.

    At a total price of 1.089 that's not all too bad, mate! After 2 years the 35 might hurt, but it'll be a completely new situation by then with QNX phones, iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S4
