Default t-mobile questionable activities

Please Login to Remove!

i purchased the 8100, about a month ago.
when i signed up with t-mobile i had them add the additional ($19.95) BB unlimited data plan onto my all ready existing account.
when i did this i could have sworn that part of their description of the add on plan was unimited text and picture messages, in addition to the unlimited data.
now when i access t-mobile and look at the description of the add-on plan, the mentioning of text/picture messaging is omitted.

this all happened before i got my first bill and, i was wondering?
-was i mistaken?
-did anyone elso observe this discrepancy in the past couple months?
-is there anything that i can do about it, if so, what?
thank you

The chances of a carrier including unlimited text and picture messaging into an unlimited BlackBerry Data Plan are extremely slim.

I would call them up and verify but I can almost guarantee that unlimited text and pictures were not included.

I also purchased my 8100 from TMO and signed up for unlimited BB for$19.95 per mos. and unlimites messaging (SMS and MMS) which was another $19.95 for my account (Family plan) This was known up front..I think there was a communication error between sales rep and you - I would call customer care and speak to them, I bet they will help you out on the first bill...

Aram,
I suppose you could theoretically say text and pictures are data therefore...
However, I have the same plan and no - text etc. is extra. I'd send SMS messages from the google page for free.

ive never heard of texts being included with the data plan either. though they should be, text is data

i opted for the 400 text package on top of my $20 unlimited data plan. i didnt even really need that, i probably send 10 texts a month. with the data plan, you can use online aim as much as you want and you wont use text messages. couple that with the unlimited email the data plan gives you and youll see there is hardly a need for texts.
