Compare Services with the carriers

I just wanted to know has anyone compared services with the mobile vendors and alll the little fees and data plans etc.

I have T-Mobile

I pay 20.00 for unlimited data
I pay .10 cents for every MMS I send.
I pay 69.00 for National with 1000 anytime minutes.
I think my night time starts at 8 p.m.

Nextel:

$45 unlimited data
~$40 for 500 minutes plus free N/W (after 9pm) with unlimited direct connect
$1 voice mail and caller id
~$3 hardware service plan

The T-Mobile plan I'm looking at is ~$60 for 1000 regular minutes, 0 anytime minutes and that includes unlimited data.

I'd love to have that..

Heres my plan with rogers.

$90
25 MB ($7/MB overage)
350 Weekday + Unlimited Evenings & Weekends
Early Evening & Weekends Calling Option: (6pm-8am) Was $5 now $7
2,500 Call Forwarding & Busy/No Answer Minutes
Call Waiting, Group Calling, Detailed Billing & 2,500 Received Text Messages
Every Call Pack (E-Voice Mail/Call&Name Display/Whocall) $12

Detailed Billing: Isn't that sweet. My plan includes Detailed Billing. What would I do without it?

I got them to give me 6 months UNLIMITED data. Not that I go over 25mb much.

But I still pay; $133.91

I too would like to know what other rogers blackberry users pay? One would think your voice mail and caller id would be included in a $90 plan.(n)

I might start calling 911 once a month aswell to get my .50 cents worth. Hehee.:oops:

Don't get me started on the $6.95 System FEE.

T Mobile has a good package with the 1,000 anytime minutes (no mobile to mobile or nights and weekend minutes) that includes unlimited data and unlimited SMS (not MMS). All that for just $59.99 month.

Much better than the cingular plan I was with (I was paying $45 for blackberry and $39.99 for 450 anytime minutes and $5 for 200 SMS a month=$90 before taxes).

$19.99 Unlimited BlackBerry Internet Service add-on
$14.99 Unlimited any type of messages
$5.99 Assurion insurance

~$101 after taxes. Not cheap, but it works out to be a pretty good deal for what I get, especially because of my minute plan. Definitely far cheaper than any other carrier with similar features.

I was lucky enough to sign up with tmobile for the 39.99 for 1000 anytime minutes, free nights and weekends, and free mobile to mobile. So I just added the 19.99 for unlimited data and texts. Not too bad, might try to get my family onto a large minute plan since I never use any of mine.

I have the same plan but I'm grandfathered on the $5 early evening weekends. Total: $131.62. The good news is that while I'm still on unlimited data (month 4 of 6; I got that too), I only used 21.3 MB last month, down from 49 Megs my first month. Of course, reinstalling my OS umpteen times and redownloading endless themes and software each time might have had something to do with that. :oops:

Hopefully the Today themes will be available while I'm still on unlimited data...

I think it's like $131/mo when you factor in all of the fees taxes (like the one that still funds the spanish-american war).

I'd get T-Mobile, except it doesn't work at my house, or at work (no reception in the building - works fine outside), or the other 60% of the places I'm at 90% of the time. Sort of like my Sprint PCS phone three years ago - only worse. So I am envious of your fellas with those T-Mobile data rates!

I was just looking through all the different companies plans to see how I stand, so I decided to check this forum and up came this thread. :)

I use Telus Mike, my package was activated April, 2005.

$45 - Unlimited Data (actually unlimited)
$40 - Voice (350 minutes) + Unlimited Evenings/Weekends
$7 - Caller ID, Voicemail, 3-way Bundle
$5 - Extended Evening/Weekends (6pm - 8am)

System Access + Emergency + Tax = $120.12 /CAD

When I was in Florida last month I managed to do 3 MB's of data roaming in 3 days. So I must be using at least 30 MB's a month. :oops:

I average about 300 daytime minutes each month, so I think I'm on a pretty decent plan for what I use. I don't think there is a better option in Canada. Anyone?

I'm surprised that it's unlimited data. When I checked the Telus site they were allowing 40MB and, I believe, $10 per extra MB. If it is unlimited, that's truly great. Now if they only offered the 8700...

That's what I pay for my basic rates, but I also have Rogers Home Phone, and get 15% off the both bills. I travel to China one week out of every month and I use my BB to receive email. That's roughly about $10 per day while I am in China.

Wife use Bell and on corporate rate, still pays about $100 per month, but she has unlimited data (real unlimited)

Now if they only offered the 8700...I believe Telus changed their rate plans last week, and the Unlimited plan was no longer unlimited.

I'm not sure about other companies since I've been with Telus Mike since 1999, but they never change the plan you are on. When I had an i1000plus I was on a killer plan that was discontinued for almost 2 years. I had some funny reactions from tech support before because of it. :) I think it was mainly because my evenings started at 7pm, which they discontinued many years ago.

I actually have a pretty decent voice plan from Fido, so I kept it and carry two devices. My profiles on my BBerry have the "Do not disturb" set to yes so phone calls don't come through, since otherwise I am charged for $1/minute (and calls are rounded to the minute!).

I can add Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Arkansas, Texas. At least major cities and highways, of course you take your chances out in the hinterlands. Kansas (where I live) and Iowa have GSM regional carriers so even away from major highways etc. the coverage is pretty good. I find that T-Mo is at least as good when travelling than the other majors.

If you travel to major cities you will be ok with about any carrier. TMO now has a lot of roaming agreements and roaming is free (no surprises).

Not any other GSM, presumably you would be roaming on their (Cingular) network anyway even if you are on T-MO. My ex-partners were on Cingular and then Verizon and despite Verizon's rep for covering all the rural areas, they dropped calls more than I did. IMHO T-Mo has as good of coverage as anyone.

T-Mobile just rolled this plan out
59.99 - 1000 anytime, BB unlimited, and unlimited text.

Why I haven't switched yet... I don't know. I think its because everyone I know is on Cingular, and the ETF is gonna be a bummer, but the way I look at it, the ETF will be paid for in savings with T-Mobile.

I have T-Mo as follows: 1500 anytime min.39.99. BB unlimited data on a second number 29.99. I like having the 2 devices, comes in very handy most of the time. BB on my belt. Nokia 8801 in my pants pocket.All this for $77 with the tax and stupid fees.

With T-Mobile:
$49.99 1500 anytime minutes with unlimited N&W
$19.99 Unlimited BlackBerry Internet Service add-on
$14.99 Unlimited any type of messages
$5.99 Assurion insurance

~$101 after taxes. Not cheap, but it works out to be a pretty good deal for what I get, especially because of my minute plan. Definitely far cheaper than any other carrier with similar features.

I have the same exact same thing. I also have internation calling enabled on mine. Love it.

My company pays for mine and I never see a bill. So far they have not taken it away from me. I use the thing all of the time. Just got a new 8700g late last week to boot.

Does anyone 'travel' arouond the country with T-Mobile? The 1 reason I'm hesitant to make the switch from Cingular to T-Mobile, is because I heard it's not that reliable for travelers.They do let you see if it will work before you get it. For the better maps, check out "compass.t-mobile.com"

This is what i have with t-mobile.
Line 1
49.99 1500 anytime national minutes
unlimited n/w minutes
Any 400 Messages ($4.99) (system seems to let me send 400 sms and 400 mms. Sweet!)
Unlimited Mobile-to-Mobile ($6.99)
BlackBerry Unlimited Add-on ($19.99)

Line 2
$29.99 VPN Internet, Voice Barred. (on a s.e. gc89. Using that connection now, down in Florida. Did i mention it's really muggy and hot here??)

I just got my blackberry last week. Still kinda new at it.

I went with Voicestream a long time ago because I liked the idea of the SIM card for phone portability. I got "grandfathered" when t-mobile acquired Voicestream.

5000 Unlimited Nationwide Plan $99.99
Blackberry Unlimited Data $29.99
Hotspot Access $19.99

I'm on the road a lot...... You may have guessed that by now....
