...atleast if I had to pay for any of my services, I'd probably feel that way.
For the most part I am there with you on the expenses. On verizon with unlimited minute plan, the cost for BES or BIS is the same. My BES hosting is being paid for me. My challenge is that I am thinking of trying sprint and I could save a total of $55/month if I skip tethering and BES. Hard to resist. But then again, I am a little gun shy on Sprint. I have been very happy with Verizon.
