    Hi everyone...

    I really want to get a blackberry with verizon, but the plan seems so much more expensive there than it does at, say, t-mobile.

    i want: unlimited data
    at least 900 minutes
    lots o' texts- 500 at least


    Is there a plan that has this for less than $120?

    thanks guys!

    VZW just lowered their BB BIS plan from I think 49.99 to 29.99. I don't know how much cheaper(other then FREE) do you want it?

    I will admit that Verizon tends to charge more than other carriers when it comes to voice and data plan bundles. But you do get what you pay for. There are many times I've been places with people and the ATT phones get no signal, and I do. I won't even go into my friend who has a Virgin Mobile phone.

    Strongly Agreed. That has been my experience as well. I got mad that vzw were charging more so I tried switching to Tmobile and came back after a week. What are you gonna do?

    Here's some options from the VZW website (I'm searching in the San Diego area, but prices and availability should be similar in your area):

    Nationwide plan: $59.99 900min, unlim n/w, unlim in-calling; $10 500 txt/pix plan, unlim in-messaging; $29.99 for unlim data plan = ~$100

    Nationwide plan #2: $79.99 900min, unlim n/w, unlim in-calling, unlim txt/pix messages; $29.99 data plan = ~$110

    BB plan: $99.99 900min, unlim in-calling, unlim n/w, unlim data; $10 500 txt/pix messaging plan = $110

    BB plan #2: $119.99 900min, unlim in-calling, unlim n/w, unlim data, unlim pix/txt

    BB plan #3: $149.99 unlim min/txt/pix/data

    Those are the options I know about; you can always check with a local store or call CS to see what else might be viable. Also note the above prices are w/o taxes, so sadly you'll still be in the $110-120 range.

    $109.99 with unlimited text and BIS
    $99.99 with unlimited in and 500 out text and unlimited BIS....
