    Do you really think any of this includes either BES or BIS?

    Nah, you most likely will have to still get a BlackBerry data plan, I imagine.

    I know you will. My question was rhetorical and aimed at the post just before mine.

    Hmmm....when I went to the site, it showed Unlimited plans for everything BUT the BB....those still had the old prices carved out by the number of anytime minutes.

    This was the only place I could find the unlimited plans: Verizon Wireless

    Hmmm....I logged in and still the only plans I found unlimited were the voice plans, not the BB plans.

    That is odd...it should take you to the Blackberry plans right from the Voice Plans And Data Plans Link

    It's only for voice plans not voice and Blackberry plans. If they had a voice and blackberry unlimited plan for 99 dollars everybody would be on Verizon right now. LOL

    The unlimited plan for BB (now that I can see it!) is $149 for unlimited calling/data/messaging.

    The voice + BB plan will cost $149.99. No matter how you look at it's a good deal when you factor in the Unlimited Anytime minutes and Text msg. I just change my plan with a savings of $40.00 and no longer need to monitor my minutes anymore. NB. This should include MMS for those who have the 8830WE. Let's hope this is true, just gotta wait and see.

    At this point for me, it's not worth the $150...

    I have a 900-minute plan, but have never gone over the 900-minutes. Plus I have VZNav, BB data and a 500-SMS/MMS plan. It still comes out $40 less/month.

    So in time, it may be worth it, but for now, it's not.

    All I see is $129 for unlimited calls and data. I see nothing about SMS/MMS. For $149, they should add in free VZNav while they are at it. Sheesh!

    For the unlimited txt/mms messaging, you have to get the Unlimited Select plan w/BB unlimited data.

    I was on an agent conference call about this on Monday, and they made it clear that as of right now, the unlimited plan is a promotional thing right now. They're not sure how long they'll be offering it. But once you're on it, you can keep it as long as you choose to. Just a bit of info.

    How lame. Advertise a plan like this to steal Sprint's thunder and then take it away. Yep, sounds like the usual Verizon BS that keeps getting sloshed around. I've lost all respect for big business.

    Actually, the Sprint unlimited plan isn't offered in a lot of markets. As far as I know, Verizon is offering this plan nationwide. And just because it's not a permanent plan doesn't mean it won't be offered for a while. With AT&T and T-Mobile announcing similar plans, we can probably expect it to stay around a while.
