    Hello all, I'm from Croatia and just want to share some T-mobile prices here related to BlackBerry Bold 9000. As for now the Bold 9700 isn't available here, and probably won't be until december or january, I've quite sure that I'll prolong my contract and go for 9000. It'll be my first BlackBery, transition from Nokia E61i.
    The sad factor are the prices. While I'm reading that you guys and girls getting your BlackBerries for free or some minor fee, I must spend some significant money on it. And I'm not jealous on you but disappointed in my country, which is a topic for some other post in some other forum.

    Well, I've been on 2 years contract, and collected maximal number of points for discount on new device, an amount of 245$. Now I have some opportunities in different tariff models:

    i150, 244$ for Bold 9000, 33$ a month, 1 GB/ 150 min./ 50 messages included + BB data plan for 16$
    i300, 204$ for Bold 9000, 64$ a month, 2 GB/ 300 min./ 150 messages included + BB data plan for 16$
    i500, 142$ for Bold 9000, 104$ a month, 5 GB/ 500 min./ 300 messages included + BB data plan for 16$

    Flex60, 285$ for Bold 9000, 14$ a month + BB data plan for 16$
    Flex150, 244$ for Bold 9000, 33$ a month + BB data plan for 16$
    Flex300, 204$ for Bold 9000, 64$ a month + BB data plan for 16$

    Mrak (Dark), 306$ for Bold 9000, 12$ a month + BB data plan for free (20 cents)

    The prices above are for private users (consumer), and there are also some family plans which I'm not interested in. Important difference between US and Croatia, is of course average income, and you can be happy if you have 1000$ a month as an higher educated employee, again I'm talking in terms of average.
    It's easy to calculate that Mrak (Dark) tariff model is the best one if you want BlackBerry in T-mobile Croatia, due to an action discount on BB data plan going until the end of the year, in which you get it virtually free of charge for next 24 months. But at what price for a device itself - 300$! Not to mention that in 100$ tariff model it should be free!

    Thanks for reading and sorry if I'm being boring or off topic, just need to share some bitterness
