When I picked up my BB earlier this year I was told that it had to have a plan to be used as BB the company required it. They said anything other than BB you could use the phone and not upgrade to a data plan. I didn't have the money for a PALM phone as I really only spent $50 using all the available rebates at the time to get my BB. Thinking about it now if I had just purchsed a PALM I would be saving money in the long run.
Total Cost of 2yr Contracted Data Plan = $864
($30/month x 24 months)
PALM 700wx phone = $400
(With rebates you could bring it down $100+)
Total Savings Lost = $450-550
