    Currently VZW requires the data plan on BB's, but not on the windows devices.

    Just like AT&T requires it on the iPhone, but not on other devices.

    Starting with the Omnia, all PDAs will require a data package. So from here on out, if you want one, it's a requirement.

    Really? That's good to hear. I never understood the point of getting a PDA and not having the data package. I would always have customer talk about wanting to keep up with contacts and calendars, but you can do that with any phone.

    I also noticed the customers that did not get the data plan would always want to return the phone after 6 months b/c it was too much phone for their needs.

    You can always get your BlackBerry and the others can have one of the 'smarter dumbphones' like the enV or Voyager.
