    If you have unlimited, its just that - unlimited. Make sure you're on the $45 plan by talking to vzw to verify.

    Call Customer Service for sure to see what's the deal (unless, you did it already).

    You should not have any colour indicators regarding your usage. Definitely call vzw. They aren't always the most reliable..

    The 44.99 plan does not include the tethering option. That plan is 59.99 which gives you email and web for blackberry and the ability to use it as a modem. The 44.99 only gives you email and web. If it was explained incorrectly I would def go back to the stor

    As would I. Vzw is nothing short of accomodating whenever I have issues. I just received a hundred dollar credit simply because I couldn't understand why my bill was so high.

    Same here. They are nothing if not accomodating. If you are on the wrong plan, they will switch you to the correct one and, usually, credit you back for the overage.

    I don't even think Verizon has a non-unlimited data plan anymore. Definitely talk to customer service.

    Data on pdas and blackberries are ulim. Also on regluar phones that use data when you get the vpak package. Modems and tethering cap at 5gb then you get overage charges.

    Don't they still have the $30 data plan also for BIS?

    That's what I got. As I recall though, unlimited does actually translate to 5GB cap. Read the fine print.

    The $30 plan does not include tethering, so there is no cap. It is unlimited.

    Even if it was a 5 gig cap, it would be hard to use that much data on the Blackberry if you don't tether.

    Just checked my online acct for data usage and the bar is clear, no color. Also, next to and under the bar it shows how many KB I've used along w/how much I have (unlim). If yours is showing charges for usage I would call CS and make sure everything got setup correctly.
