    I currently have four lines on T-mobile family plan:

    $59.99 -750 minutes for first two lines $9.99 each add'l line
    unlimited mobile to mobile
    unlimited nights and weekends

    $19.99 - unlimited video, picture, text messaging this is for all 4 lines

    $19.99 - unlimited email/internet (blackberry curve 8320) just one line

    I like to get the blackberry bold 9700 but Verizon doesn't carry it. What blackberry or smartphone is comparable?

    Thanks for anyones help.

    Closest would probably be the Tour but the Tour 2 is supposedly around the corner. You may also want to look into one of the current or upcoming android phones.

    You're also probably looking at a minimum of $150 (99.99 for 700 talk/text+2*9.99/line+29.99 data plan). Also with the new data requirement on 3g multimedia phones, you could end up paying at least $9.99 more on the 3 other lines.

    The Tour is the closest thing right now. T-Mo is cheaper regarding plans unless you actually need to use your phone, then you'll be paying more at VZW.

    Make sure you look at their non smart phones before you switch over. VZW has started a mandated $9.99 data plan for their non smart phones worth anything. They do have some junk phones that don't require the data plan, but unless they have made more available scene the last time I looked, that is slim pickings.

    Most phones on Verizon require some sort of data plans, but even AT&T requires texting plans for their phones. Yes, the pickings are slim for phones that don't require any data

    The only difference that AT&T has between Verizon lately on plans is requiring Texting plans instead of Data feature on almost all 3G devices (unless its a smartphone) and rollover. If you do not want to ad data on other lines and get better phones I say get AT&T but check your coverage first. If they require you to have a messaging package and you have the 30 dollar unlimited family messaging on the plan then that's all you need for AT&T. Data on non smart phones is just $10 for unlimited data when you have the family messaging, $15 if you don't for unlimited data.
