    Back way, before smartphones, let's say 2005-2008 were blackberries incredibly expensive?

    Also mobile data has only recently become affordable and offered in decent amounts, what happened back before this?

    I would like to know about this, like how much data did you get, how much did it cost, and what could you do with it. Could you web browse?

    I bought my first BlackBerry in 2005. It was the 7100t. I had a BlackBerry plan that was $19.99 for unlimited data, BBM, web browsing and emails.

    At that time, unlimited data plans cost $19.99 on T-Mobile, and it was not mandatory to have a data plan.

    Data plans started going up higher in cost, and became mandatory when smartphones were becoming more popular than they were in 2005.
