    Hello

    I was looking at order the Torch via Walmart online since it is $99 and Cell Phones for free with Cell Phone Plans from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless is paying the sales tax. Apparently you can get coupon codes for Walmart. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good coupon code?

    You can get it from Amazon for the same price and there is no tax or s/h also (ever).

    True - but a coupon on top of $99 beats $99 and no coupon

    Sadly - The amazon price is only for new customers. For someone upgrading it is $199. For a new customer it is 89

    No it's still $99.99 for contract extensions, just not for family plans...

    Individual plan extensions are still $99.99

    just curious whats an average monthly plan? I'm thinkin about switching to att just for the torch. I know its probably not close to sprints prices on the everything family 1500.

    Depends on what you need.

    $39.99 for 450 minutes + nights and weekends + rollover (rollover and free mobile calls on Sprint kinda even out, unless you use a lot of minutes all the time). $59.99 for 900 minutes + A-List (similar to tmobile faves).

    2gb blackberry data plan is $25.

    Text messaging is $5 for 200, $15 for 1500, $20 for unlimited. I dropped down to the 1500 sms plan because my Sprint usage was always ~1200 or less, but it's only a $5 difference...

    So $40 + 25 + 20 = $85 without taxes if you want unlimited sms and not counting any discounts. VVM is free, since VZ charges for it.

    Since BB data is compressed (about 3x less than Android/iPhone), you can get by with the $15/200mb data plan easily.

    Depends, if I stream pandora a lot and do videos (not on wifi) I can hit 1.8gb on heavy use.

    But yeah, the same amount of usage on android or iphone would far, far surpass that number...
