    Have to say, TMO is great for the multiple phones deal. 4 phones, 1000 anytime, unl text/pic, 1 BB unl package for 172 a month. With the myfavs, never use up all the minutes.

    America's Choice 2000 Anytime 2Y 0504 - $99.99/month
    250 MSG - Non Camera - $5.00/month
    Unlimited Email & Web for BlackBerry - $29.99/month
    Taxes & Fees - $17.70/month

    Total: $152.68/month

    I average about 3200 minutes per month. About 50% of that is in network so I never go over. I also average about 180 messages/month.

    My employer gives me a $150 phone allowance every month, so I only really pay a couple of bucks each month...

    It's better to just switch to the unlimited plan because I believe it is $99 now for the same price you are paying for 2000 and you would really never have to worry about going over....

    A little off topic, but I've done a lot of compairing lately of various blackberry plans and there does seem to be a rather large jump in price between the discount carriers and at&t and verizon.

    Here is a breakdown of the current offerings of the various companies in alphabetical order with similar packages (or at least as close as they come):

    39.99 450 anytime w/m2m and n/w @9pm
    8.99 7pm n/w option
    50.00 blackberry BIS plan with unlimited SMS/MMS included

    TOTAL AT&T = 98.98 w/7pm nights (89.99 w/9pm nights)

    69.99 450 anytime, unlimited m2m, n/w @7pm
    Unlimited BIS/data, unlimited text, unlimited navigation*

    TOTAL Sprint = 69.99 *Not included on other carriers

    39.99 600 anytime, unlimited n/w
    6.99 unlimited m2m (7pm option not available)
    19.99 unlimited WAP/BIS package
    9.99 any 1000 SMS/MMS messages

    TOTAL T-Mobile: 76.96

    99.99 450 anytime, unlimited m2m, n/w @ 9pm (7pm option not available)
    Unlimited Blackberry BIS, and unlimited text

    TOTAL VZW: 99.99

    While these plans/offerings are not exactly identical, it does appear that Sprint is the price leader and certainly gives the most bang for the buck. Now i should also point out that T-Mobile offers a 9.99 blackberry plan that offers their "T-Zones" and unlimited email which none of the others offer. Tmobile also offers the cheapest international unlimited BB BIS package available (19.99 extra). Sprint is the only to offer unlimited included navigation and text in their basic 30.00 BIS plan. 7pm nights are also a very valuable feature to me and my usage patterns.

    No single carrier would be the best all around for everyone, depending on your usage habbits and needs/desires, some may be cheaper than others. Sprint does allow pretty open roaming throughout the country, and desipte what the perception is, through roaming agreements they actually have the largest voice footprint of any carrier. Now specific coverage in/around your city may vary however.

    Some carriers charge more than others for the initial equipment charges, but it should be pointed out that Sprint is the only carrier that allows upgrades at discounted prices throughout your 2 year contract, just just at the end or near the end, making replacing your expensive BB due to accident or some other such incident without some kind of loss coverage cheapest via sprint.

    Sprint, for all the positives they offer, also have some negatives of limited international capabilities, as well as, how should we say "challenging" customer service practices, although those do appear to be slowly going in the right direction. Their coverage is still an issue though. Considering how long they have been in my market (DFW) they still have some holes that are IMO unexcusable. Yes they do offer unrestricted roaming even in their native footprint, having native coverage is always best.

    TMobile offers a decent product at a decent price. However their data is the slowest among the group, and i have a suspicion that their golden boy customer service awards will soon be tarnished as they experience increasing network load and data issues due to congestion and their overall lack of appropriate and currently usable spectrum. If you are a frequent international traveler, their prices are hard to beat though, and their international roaming footprint and quality of service is impressive. However their US roaming agreements are lacking.

    AT&T offers a decent balance of price vs value, however they too have had some rough spots, but seem to be on the right track now that the bulk of the cingular/at&t merger/transition is in the past. If you are an audiophile however, you may be dissapointed as IMHO their voice quality is perhaps the poorest of the bunch. Although in my experience where at&t has native 850 GSM coverage it is VERY good and exceptional in markets where they have both 1900 and 850 coverage combined.

    I have little personal experience with verizon, but their prices certainly are at the top of the group. Considering their rather tight and restrictive policies, i would suggest that their success is due to 1, a decent (but not perfect) network and 2, very good advertising. I live in a 1900 vzw market and i must say they have come a long long way from the early days of the old primco network they started with. Inside stores and in some areas outside in the DFW market my sprint phone will roam on verizon.

    In the years ahead, I'd really like to see Alltel and Sprint hook-up. That combo would be the best for the consumer. If verizon and Alltel hook-up and let Voda leed the way, sprint will have a tough road ahead. Tougher than it already is...

    Lets see 5 phones (2 of which are Blackberries), unlimted text, night and weekends, 1400 shared minutes, with my corporate discount on the voice plan (a whole 24%), we pay about $200 per month... but you can't beat unlimited mobile to mobile and rollover minutes.
