I have two questions...
1. Do text messages count as DATA??? (i am not talking about IMs or picture/video messages...just plan text messages)
2. Will 10MB of data cover my usage according to what i have put in above??
I am not paying $40.99 a month for unlimited data (not in enough money in my budget) so its either the 10MB plan or nothing. Also i called Verizon and ask them the same question posted above and theysaid...since the Blackberry is always online i will for sure use more than 10MB of data per month so i need to get the unlimited plan....BUT when searching online i have found plenty of people who use the Blackberry more than described above and they say they come in way under 10MBs of usage a month????
What do you guys think???
just get unlimited for the extra peace of mind. all it takes is someone to send you a few attachments in a billing cycle and you're "F'ed"
T-mobile and Cingular/ATT have data plans at $30/month and $35/month respectively
