Its a good deal here...any Canadian will tell you that.
Agreed. T-Mobile does have the cheapest plan but if other BB plans are too expensive for you, there's always Sprint's Samsung Instinct, Verizon's LG env2, T-Mobile's Sidekick LX, AT&T's Samsung Blackjack... lots of alternatives, though I don't know what data would be for each (aside from the SK based on personal experience). Granted, everyone here will tell you to go with the BB and an unlimited data plan. We're just that biased
