    I just switched my wife's phone from an HTC to a BB. and for some reason now when looking at my charges the unlimited data package went from $30 to some BlackBerry Unlimited BBA package that is $45!
    Any one know what this plan is? I thought the data plan ($30) would work even with a blackberry.


    Thanks.

    I would call them and find out, non BES should be $30 unless they just changed it

    Indeed. They probably "accidentally" put it on your line. Call and tell them you only want the 30$ plan.

    Sounds like someone could have made an error at Verizon and signed her up for the BES plan. This is only a mistake of course if she isn't using the blackberry to access work email on a corporate enterprise server.

    sounds like they accidentally upgraded you to the data plan that includes tethering

    I was told that when you get a blackberry that the system automatically changes it to a BES plan. So the $45 a month one. They are supposed to manually change it back to the BIS ($30 one) when you get your bb. I would either go in or call and make them change it back.

    I don't think that would be possible as tethering is either $30 BIS + $30 for tethering or $45 BES + $15 for tethering. Both come out to $60.

    Thanks for confirming what I was thinking guys (I thought the basic BB plan was the same unlimited data plan that the other "smart phones" get). I called CS and they took care of it without any issues

    +1. I'm not positive, but I think the charge for tethering (from VZW anyway) is $60 - your plan. With a BB plan and tethering, you pay $60 - how much the actual tethering is depends on whether you're BES ($45) or BIS ($30).

    Is there any sort of reason to this? Or is it just because they can?


    And @OP, $45 may sound like a lot, but it's the price you pay for excellence!

    I think it's because the mobile broadband card is $59.99 a month.

    So they're charging you the same amount whether you use the card of your BB?

    Or do you mean the card itself is $60? Then a plan on top of that?

    The plan is $60 for the mobile broadband card. Plus the amount of the actual card on top of that. I'm not a Verizon rep so don't quote me on any of this. Just what I've learned from reading these forums for a while.

    I think that makes sense. In fact, I'm pretty sure it does. Something sounds weird about it but that could just be confusion from using VZW and Logic in the same sentence.
