    Hey Everyone,

    Well here lately I have been thinking about switching from my 7100i with nextel which I have been having a lot of service problems with to Verizon. I am confused though. About the plans, I run a business and so I need a lot of available minutes like unlimited! But I text message a ton prob 1500-2500 a month sometimes as well as use the internet and email a ton. What would I be looking at price wise for a plan? I have a verizon book I got at a store but they have different things for everything. I dont know how to put it all together and has me confused. I like sprint nextel because the simply everything is all I need instead of 10 different things to make up 1 plan. Also is customer service good? incase of technical issues? If I pay to cancel my contract and then purchase a new phone and service I need to figure out a price. I understand I can test drive them and just see how that goes. The coverage map looks good and the reason for not going with alltel is no unlimited plan and also the MMS problems they have. If you could help me I would appreciate it!!!!

    You didn't say if you're planning on getting a BB. If so, you're looking at $156 per. That'll give you unlimited calls, 5000 out of network texts,
    BB bis, and insurance..

    Best way to work w Verizon from a small business standpoint is to make friends with a local store manager and/or rep. VZW has some great share plans that help you add lines that can share the corporate pool which is nice for the secretary or delivery guy that uses 90 minutes a month. The more lines you have, the sweeter the deal gets. The greater the relationship w your rep, the sweeter the deal gets, too.

    You had to throw the nav in, that's another 9.99 per. As a business owner, maybe they will give you a break. Couldn't hurt to ask..

    Hi,

    I recently upgraded to a Verizon tour and was still using my @alltel.blackberry.com email account. I received an upgrade from Verizon and after the upgrade my alltel.blackberry.com disappeared----can I get that email back or do I need to create a vzw.blackberry.net account?

    Thanks!!!

    Wait till jan and get a curve 2 with sprint and keep your current plan. Service will improve because you will not be using iden network anymore.

    Thats your best bet.

    You dont have to get VZ navigator from Verizon. There are other free turn by turn GPS nav apps out. Google has one I believe.

    If you are looking at ulimited minutes, and 5000 texts, and unlimited data, I would think it may be cheaper to go with Sprint. But from my dealings with them, they CS isn't anywhere near as good as Verizon.

    If you deal with your cell provier a lot, it may be a better idea to go with Verizon, and pay the extra $$. But, if you dont deal with CS that much, or want to save money, go with Sprint.
