Default Blackberry Data Plan question

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry Pearl on an AT&T Family Plan and just switched from the AT&T Data Plan to the Blackberry Personal Data Plan for my device. On this Family Plan we also have unlimited text messaging for all devices. My question is, do I have unlimited texting on my Blackberry since I switched to the Blackberry Data Plan or do I need a separate messaging plan for the Blackberry?

Default Wow, Sprint's BB Plan !

I am surprised the value Sprint offers - the standard consumer BB pack ("BIS") add-on for $30 includes up to 10 personal email accts (gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc.), unlimited text, unlimited EVDO data, NAVIGATION (turn-by-turn). Not bad!

Keep in mind that both Sprint and T-Mobile re trying hard to keep their current customers and attract more. Their networks aren't as large as ATT and Verizon so they have to do something else to get attention and market share.

But all $30 plans offer Internet and email with up to 10 accounts. Sprint just bundles a couple other items to make it a better value for your dollar. Now if they just had the nationwide coverage ................
