Now with the blackberry it seems you can not this for almost double the price.
That is the one complaint I have on the blackberry. Great phones, but the data plans are a little expensive for what you get. I guess I should mention, that no, I wouldnt use my phone for EMail, but to quickly check out the traffic, or a quick stock quote... maybe...
I have shown off a lot of people (whom have treo's) the pearl, and they all ask about the data plans. I tell them about the Blackberry personal unlimited plan for $30 without SMS texting. Thats when they loose interest.
Off my soap box... thanks for reading...
All I can say is "boo hoo!"
Go north of the border and $25/month gets you half a meg. If you want anything CLOSE to unlimited (250megs) you're looking at around $100/month.
So before you start crying about how expensive $30/month is, consider that you're pretty darn well off!
