Default Cheapest VZN BB plan?

Please Login to Remove!

What's the least I could spend/month to use an 8130 with data? Can I avoid the txt charge and just use a browser client instead like Tmob/ATT customers do? If yes what does that do for MMS if I don't have a monthly txt plan? This person is looking to upgrade to the pearl but keep the bill down yet use email/browser/txt/mms/voice. Thanks

Why not just pay the money for the text message plan? I think the cheapest rate for text messaging on VZW is 5 bucks for 250 messages. Just go without that Starbucks venti latte for one day out of the month. =)

Either way, you get hit with charges for any incoming texts as well so I guess unless you're comfortable telling the rest of the world to not text you at all, I don't think there's any way around it. The vtext address will come to your phone as text if you were to give it out.
