    Bottom line......I do not need minutes on my mobile device.
    I was hoping by now there would be a data only service offered by blackberry, but life goes on.

    So here is my idea

    30.00 a month for calling and text (prepaid service)

    30.00 a month for Playbook data.......

    That is about 40.00 less than what I would pay if I went back to a carrier with a plan, text and data. Where they get you is with text, I still cannot believe they are able to charge for a built in service such as SMS.

    PS....I spent 5 years in the mobile industry. I am looking for a smart, economical way to receive email and browse on the go.

    Thank you all for your time and input. What do you think?

    Thanks for the helpful advice....

    I am looking for and am used to a high powered web browsing experience, which is why I was going to go with the Playbook for data.

    I believe data is 30.00 a month on playbook.

    If so, I will just combine your virgin mobile option with a playbook and I'm good to go.

    Sure the playbook is high cost at first, but I will make the money back in what I save each month compared to what I used to pay with my carrier.

    Thanks again!

    Wind holiday miracle plan. $40 for unlimitted data, text and Canada wide calling. Also includes voicemail and caller id. Voice service can be iffy at times but everything else is good.
