    Okay -- as you can see from my information I have ATT. However, my friend has Verizon. She's contemplating get a BB (trying to show her the light...) and we were examining her bill and we discovered a monthly charge called "Get It Now Downloads." This is adding $13.97 each month. Has anyone else encountered this?

    Also, she'd like to have a BB with the works (data, unlimited messaging, goodly number of minutes). Can this be done for $130-ish a month?

    Thank you for your help! I will be checking back cause I know you Verizon people know your stuff!

    Well, she does use a lot of minutes, about 2,200 on her last month's bill. She doesn't want the Get It Now - that is a charge they have added and we just discovered it in our quest to find a way to lower her bill and thus enable her to have a BB.

    To have a Get It Now charge she would have had to have downloaded something or be subscribed to something monthly that is a download, like a game. Her best bet is to call Verizon and ask what the best plan for her is or look online.
