    hey all.. i have an 8320 with T-Mobile. paying $115 a month for 1500 minutes, AIM, unlimited text and BES.

    Heard about Boost's $50 a month plan. Can't for the life of me get an actual human being to pick up over there, which is extremely discouraging, and the same reason i'm asking you these questions.

    1) can a T-Mobile Blackberry work on the Boost network?
    2) how's Boost reception? I live in L.A., and I travel the country a fair amount.
    3) Does Boost support BES? If so, how much extra is that?

    I appreciate it guys..

    Where are you located in the world? To my knowledge, TMo doesn't lock phones to their service in Europe. In the US, I think it depends on the contract, but the last time I was there and in a TMo store, the guy told me they aren't locked usually.

    1) tmo is a GSM company |||| boost is a CDMA/iDEN network... not the 8320 will not work with Boost
    2) boost works off of Sprint tower's... look for local sprint users and ask them
    3) no they only support BIS.

    you might want to talk to t-mo about a EM+ plan. i think an unlimited everything for one person is 70/80 bucks. But you have to pay full price for all your devices.

    i pay 142 for unlimited EVERYTHING on 2 blackberries.

    Man, I'm paying $130 for 4 phones, 1000 minutes, unlimted text, one BB package, and a home phone as well. Get T*Mo to switch it up for you! With that EM+ package you can break your phone cost over 20 or 22 months or something, when the 9700 first came out it was $24 a month or so, so $70 for unlimited everything + $24 for a phone is still less than you are paying now.
    I don't believe Boost gives phone discounts.
