    Happily (for some of us), T-Mobile has been great about honoring grandfathered plans. I still have the $9.98 / month unlimited "any messaging" add on for our plan. $9.98 flat fee for any kind of msg, SMS/MMS, for up to five lines (I've got 3 now, and will be adding a 4th line as my daughter gets up to "cellphone age"...so the $10 monthly fee gets more valuable as time goes by.

    This is what makes unlimited text messaging is for. You don't have to worry about these price hikes!

    If you've got the 19.99 Blackberry package, you've got unlimited SMS anyway.

    you have unlimited email and data usage, NOT unlimited SMS. this is true for all of the major carriers.

    im not shaking in my boots over this one. i'll take the price hike for the 3G. Its probably really going to be the plain old cellphone users that will be affected anyway; those with razrs, candy-bar phones and such, who dont think they use enough sms to get the unlimited sms godsend

    Really? I must be mixing up my SOC's. How embarrassing.

    Ah, well, they pay me to troubleshoot regular handsets, not know the Blackberry pricing plans. I know I get the unlimited SMS on my free employee Blackberry unlimited SOC, so that must be how I mixed it up.

    you know... I always wondered.

    on a previous phone, I racked up a large bill. called T-Mo, and they told me that it was because Yahoo IM used text messaging. I thought it would be the same for the BB's. learn something new everyday! thanks!

    but no, I do go through a LOT of text messages every month, so I went ahead and got the unlimited SMS plan.

    You can get the thing where you can use any I'm progam without using data.

    I wish tey would make a plan for the BB crowd like they have for Sidekick users. Hopefully soon tho because I don't like paying for both services.

    Thank god for 'grandfather' plans. It would be horrible if they got rid of that feature. I myself am on one as well but for mintues (1000 min for 39.99)
