    I am looking to get this phone soon, but I need to know if unlimited texting is included in the 29.99 a month data plan. And if not, how much will it cost to add it?
    Thanks

    No texting is not included in that.
    I'm not on vzw so I don't know the prices

    That 30 dollars covers the web/email/bbm

    The plan I have is $79.99/mo. 900 min. Talk & text. Thats unlimited text and video messaging to any carrier. Then you add the $29.99/mo. for the blackberry plan. But texting is not included in the blackberry plan.

    Texting w/ VZW is either ala carte, or tied to your voice plan. You can either go w/ one of their talk & text plans, which includes unlimited SMS and MMS, or go ala carte and buy "buckets" of minutes. IIRC, $5/mo buys you 250 texts, $10 buys you 500, and $20 buys you 5000. All of the bucket plans include unlimited messages to other VZ customers, so the buckets are only needed for non-VZ messages.

    No, texting is not included in the data plan. Unlimited texting is $20, and I have the 500 in/out for $10 plus unlimited verizon to verizon texting. Between that and BBM I am set.

    Texting can be on a per use basis for $0.20 per SMS text message or $0.25 per MMS picture or video message. The $29.99 data plan includes unlimited e-mails, data and BBM, so you may not need a texting plan.

    I wish it was included! Verizon needs to add it, like Sprint, 69.99 for everything! They could afford it!
