I agree with all of you that I should have done my homework, moreover I would like to state that I am a user who needs access to business mails on the go and uses a moderate amount of features like meetings etc. And I would like to point out is that in India atleast, the difference in the two data plans is quite large, the BB data plan is amost 4 times as costly as the regular data plans.
What really left me aghast was that these moderate features that I am have to pay this sum for are accessible at a much lower cost to people who do not use so much business oriented phones like iphones etc. I really did not anticipate the cost difference to be that high...I am sorry if I offended anyone, I know most of you love your BBs but I just find this too much too pay as a medium level business user..may be I will need them as the business grows.. I thought of buying a BB as I thought it would be helpful in the long run too...I have even deleted my post content so that you no longer feel bad for it
