    Alright, so the problem is a few months ago, I had to get rid of my blackberry because I am a college freshman going through some financial problems. But now I'm back!!!!!

    The problem is though, is that my cycle ends 1/3/09. I just ordered my blackberry from this guy i know, and he shipped it today so i'll probably get it on the 29th or the 30th. The question is: should i enable the plan ($30 charge), and hope that I get a partial bill for that? OR will they charge me the whole $30?

    I have work on the 4th, and they require me to have a blackberry, so I'm just wondering
    Thanks!!

    You will get a partial month charge and then a month in advance charge like normal. Welcome back to the Crack.......

    so i'll be using the data thing for like 4 days, so the charge probably won't be much right?

    and thank you!!! i'm so glad to be back

    No not much at all, 4 days of 30.00 will be like 4 bucks. roughly.

    I'm pretty sure I mentioned that, read the second post.

    The 3rd is the end of the bill cycle so you can activate it on the fourth and it will start on your new cycle.
