    Hi

    I currently I have the HTC Diamond and getting sick of it. I am really interested in getting the Blackberry Curve 8330 (Inferno Colored) off eBay.

    My question is: Do I have to upgrade my plan? I think I currently have the Fair and Flexible plan (I think thats what its called). I have unlimited text and internet. I read somewhere about a BB Plan? 30 bucks a month??

    Thanks

    yea, If your on the fair and flex plan (thats where you pay x amount for extra minutes right?) they will make you upgrade your plan OR pay the $30 a month BB plan.. which its cheaper to just get a new plan....


    If you upgrade it's in the contract you have to update your plan anyways if your on an older plan

    Ok, I will go to Sprint tommorow and talk to them. I'm not sure how much I pay a month right now with my family. I hope if I have to upgrade, it won't be more expensive than my current plan.


    And what do you mean with your last sentence?

    Sprint is effing GAY!

    Right now, with my family, I'm paying only 10 bucks a month. If I get the blackberry, I have to upgrade to a freaking 70 dollar plan. ***! What phone can I upgrade to without getting screwed over???

    keep calling different reps and try to see if you can just get the $30 BB plan... but i dont know your plan n etc.. but it was worth my family plan into changing to a everything data plan. i use to pay those $30 extra before. But now i pay less by getting a family data plan

    - anything but a bb, or anything that doesn't require an "anything" plan (instinct does, and there are some others)

    but if your only paying $10/mo vs $70/mo, it's your call as to what is more important at this point in time, money or upgrade, etc. But from what I hear they are trying to stick most new smartphones on the SEP plans.

    Sure mr post 1
    LOL, Jon Huff = Scammer, Agreed.

    And why would I call several sprint reps waiting for one of them to offer me the 30 BB Plan when I don't even have the phone? And when I'm done with my diamond, I'm gonna hand it off to a sibling. So my sibling will have to upgrade to a data plan. I think I'm going to end up doing a share data plan where everyone in the family upgrades.

    Anyways, I'm going to sprint today. Wish me luck

    Good News!!!

    Just came back from sprint. They said I can simply get the 30 dollar blackberry plan. They said its only a few bucks more than my current plan.
    Looks like I will be a Inferno Colored Blackberry Curve owner soon!

    Do you guys recommend buying it for 200 on ebay with NO contract or 50 dollars at the sprint store with a 2 year contract?
