    I am just curious to know what other Blackberry owners are paying a month for their service? Who is your service through? And what is your monthly bill?
    If this is too invasive for some, that's fine you don't have to answer. I'm just curious about other Mobile companies & what all of us Blackberry owners are really paying & are we getting what we pay for??

    The plan I have is as follows:
    PA & WV unlimited calling to any number: $55.00
    Blackberry Personal Package: $30.00
    Unlimited Messaging (includes Sms & Mms): $20.00
    Equipment Insurance: $4.99
    Taxes & Government Fees: $3.47

    So I pay about $113.00 a month for these services.

    Thanks in advance for any input I may receive.

    I use a family plan with my parents, with my blackberry and my father's. It comes to about $180.00 monthly on Verizon. This includes the 500? minutes, texting package, blackberry data and insurance on my phone, and blackberry data on my father's phone.

    We (Me & my 3 kids) have had AT&T for a couple of years, then my oldest daughter decided she HAD to have a Tour so she switched to Verizon...My agreement with her was that I would pay the bill until she graduated from college. Well she graduates next month!!!
    Her Verizon bill is OUTRAGEOUS!!!
    Here's her plan:
    Nationwide text & talk 900 minutes: $79.99
    Blackberry Unlimited Package: $44.99
    Insurance: $7.99
    Taxes & Fees: $5.00
    Her bill every month is about $138.00
    I think it's absolutely ridiculous!!

    If she is on BIS with Verizon, her Blackberry package should only be $29.99 (if she's not tethering through them or anything)

    What do you mean BIS? I'm not familiar with Verizon's service? I just think they are really overcharging us.

    BIS meaning blackberry data. If she is a personal user (which I assume she is) her plan should be $29.99/month for the blackberry data, not $45

    Boost mobile, unlimited nationwide talk text and data $60 a month, no contract. But I did pay $249 up front for the 8330 curve. But I gotta say this much, where I'm at (Seattle) the coverage has been great and so far the service has been outstanding. The only thing I don't get is BES and conference calling, but I don't use them anyway. So the trade off has been more than worth it.

    My friend has Boost & I've been seriously thinking about them. We live in WV but she has no problem with her service either. The other cell phone providers had alot of problems when the students came back in Aug. '09 because the towers just couldn't handle the overflow of people. I obviously don't need BES because I don't even know what it is & I never conference call so I'm seriously thinking about going to Boost!! Thanks for the info.

    Your very welcome! Oh and by the way Boost runs off the Sprint network.

    The wife and I have a family plan on Sprint. She hardly uses the data, and doesn't have a berry, but its still pretty reasonable:
    Sprint Everything? Family 1500
    1500 min to share
    unlimitied data, and messaging
    runs 129.99/mo
    insurance 7/mo each (14)
    taxes and such about 5-7

    our bill is around $150 a month for the two of us

    Wow that's pretty good. My oldest daughter's bill through Verizon is 138.00 a month alone. Then me & my youngest are with AT&T & our bill together (we both have unlimited everything) is about 232.00 a month. Thanks for the info. Sprint may be an option as well.

    Also, you may want t check into any monthly discounts available to you. If you a member of certain banks or cedit unions. You may be able to take a percentage off you bill. And also, you Amy be eligible through your employer. I have sprint and am on the 1500 min family plan with unlimited data and messaging. Blackberry data included with 2 lines. The monthly cost is $129 but I get 25% off my monthly bill through my employer so my bill comes to about $115 a month after taxes and insurance on both lines.

    AT&T Family Shared plan 1400 minutes (I think) with Rollover.
    There are 5 phones on our plan, four of which are BlackBerries. We've got the unlimited BB data service for three of them (one is an old T-Mobile Pearl), and $20 for unlimited texting across all phones.

    I think we pay about $210 monthly? For all five phones, I don't think that's too bad...

    That's pretty good. I need to check into some cheaper plans through AT&T if we decide to stay with them. I'm so tired of the outrageous cell phone bills. Thanks for the input.

    Huh? The iPhone alone is $30 a month for data (it is not on BES). Unlimited text is another $20 a month. What are you trying to say above? You have an iPhone on BES with 2000 minutes and unlimited texts for $35 a month???

    We have 5 lines on AT&T. Two are smart phones. I have my Bold on my company's BES so it is $45 a month (I get to expense that amount, though). My wife has an iPhone for another $30. We have 850 minutes for $60 a month and the other 3 phones are $10 a month each. Total bill is usually just over $200.

    Wow! That is really cheap for At&t...But I think he missed something. 5 lines and only $200.00 is good too. For 3 Blackberries, 2 are through At&t & 1 is through Verizon and I'm paying about $370 to $380 a month for just those 3!! Now the 2 Blackberry's through At&t have unlimited everything so that may be why. But we don't have a house phone & haven't for about 5 years so we need unlimited calling. I really need to look into our usage & what we need and don't need. Thanks for your response.

    My 3 other $10 a month each phones are for my mom, step-dad and mother-in-law. They just need the basic phone and do not text. My wife and I use Yahoo Messenger so we don't really text either. Once my kids get older we will have to drop the parents and our bill will shoot up with unlimited texting, etc.
