    what a bunch of money grabbing.....

    ok thanks. so far ive been doing fine with my wifi as everywhere i go has wifi for me to use. its just the little things like BB messenger and the apps that dont work with wifi. ill probably succumb to getting a data plan in the near future but ill see how i go for now

    WOW 25 bucks? **** thats a total rip off.

    well my data plans only costs 5 per month (thats $8). i just need to activate it. just havent yet. might do in the future. but i still feel that its too much. especially payin 180 for the phone itself. the thing is they dont tell you this **** when you buy the phone. which is really annoying

    i think 5 isn't actually a lot for a month. what can 5 buy you from where you are? if you divide it over the course of 30 days, it works out to only be a few cents more per day. my 2 worth.
