    Hey all!
    I'm new, so bear with me! LOL

    I'm currently searching for the best bang for my buck Verizon plan which is all inclusive for BB users.

    Here's what I'm looking for (If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it and your feedback!)

    minimal voice minutes
    voicemail
    call waiting
    texting
    emailing
    internet
    messaging

    I've been digging thru verizon's page and I came up with the "BlackBerry Nationwide Email & Messaging" with 450 minutes.

    Is this the best bet? does anyone know?
    Thanks in advance you guys!

    After this bonehead question, I swear they'll be mere technical questions that would be expected from a newborn BB user! LOL

    For what you are looking for yes. If you went with with an ala cart type plan, it would be about the same or a bit more.

    Welcome to CB and to the addiction of Blackberry phones. By far the plan mentioned is best for a single phone user.

    Plenty of experts on this site, so no question is ever a dumb question.

    Lol. Or you could unlock your blackberry and go with AT&T.

    Verizon Wireless rips you off.
    Not only that, they advertise for idiots.
    3G. Pft. EDVO & Rev A aren't 3G...

    Sorry, had to say it.

    AT&T Employee. Hmm, I wonder if this counts as advertising...

    Hey, if you guys do sign up for AT&T make sure you tell me lol.

    Check to see if you get a corporate discount, assuming you work.

    Lol. Or you could unlock your blackberry and go with AT&T.
    Hmmm, can I do this with a Curve or Pearl?

    Verizon Wireless rips you off..
    Yup, they sure do, with prices at or belowthose of AT&T.
    Not only that, they advertise for idiots..
    Does anyone remember the Carrottop ads?
    3G. Pft. EDVO & Rev A aren't 3G....
    You obviously haven't a clue as to what 3G means - then again, if average VZW speeds running 50-300% faster than AT&T isn't 3G, when do you think AT&T will upgrade to keep up?

    Sorry, had to say it..
    Yes - we see misled, ignorant & lying souls claiming this every day.

    AT&T Employee. Hmm, I wonder if this counts as advertising....
    No, it counts as someone running off at the mouth without backing, truth, reason or good intent.

    Hey, if you guys do sign up for AT&T make sure you tell me lol.
    if they do, will they be counted as foolish as you?

    You know, I should spend some time on the AT&T forums. I wonder how they'd handle it over there when they found out that VZW speeds of 1.2mbps are common, while their precious AT&T tops out at under 500kbps, with 350 more common? Then there's that little thorn in the side that says outside of metro areas, AT&T's 3G network is pretty much a pipe dream.

    Of course, the vaunted AT&T is using that tried & true WWII technology, TDMA/GSM with its hard capacity limits & hard handoffs tower to tower. VZW is stuck with the fully digital CDMA, only a secure military technology until less than 20 years ago - 1/10th the radiation emissions, soft tower handoffs and modulated bandwidth.

    Last time I heard, AT&T was still adamantly opposed to false advertising. Maybe you should tell them what you've been up to so you can join Obama's core constituency of those dependent on government handouts. Because if they were to hear you claiming to be an employee and making false statements as such...

    Probably a high-pressure telemarketer working for an AT&T contractor...

    Or he could get the 900 Minute plan like I have. Which also included the 5 Unlimited Family Share Plan numbers. Oh wait, he said minimal voice. 450 is good

    I got the minimal voice on my Curve 8900 through T Mobile. My Second BlackBerry and its good enough. Free night and weekends with the Storm so I can talk away.

    BTW, WELCOME TO YOUR NEW ADDICTION! GET READY FOR BLACKBERRYS TO TAKE OVER YOUR LIFE!!!!
