it uses Wifi for your voice calls. So you don't use your minutes. Just sign up for the Hotspot @ home package which is $10 a month and you have unlimited minutes as long as your on wifi.

You definitely should. T-Mobile only has one data plan for the BB. Blackberry Unlimited is 19.99. Just know that you will also have to sign up for a message bundle also because, unlike the SK, the BB data plan doesn't include texts or picture messaging.

Sounds like a good plan. If you don't have the Hotspots@Home feature added for 9.99 you won't get unlimited calling via UMA. You will still be able to make calls over UMA but it will use your minutes. If you talk a lot at home and need the unlimited minutes then I would say to get the 1000 anytime and unlimited nights and weekends for 39.99 and H@H. If you seriously only talk to 5 or less people a lot then the Myfaves should be fine for you.
