Default Was Confused ?

Please Login to Remove!

So yesterday i get a call from the company im with witch is Telus . The guy ask me if im aware of my blackberry plan? i said i wasnt cause im clueless at this kinda stuff . The dealer said when i bought my pearl that for 55$ CND that i would have 4 Megs of data (and he said it was alot) witch i have not clue how much that is?

So he told me that i used in the last month 12 Megs witch he said is gonna be 95$ extra on my bill . I dont use data at all exept a little BB messenger. so he told me for 5$ extra my data would be unlimited so i took it ...BUT is their any other suprises that i should look out for?

thanks in advance

Me, I love surprises. I'd rather them be the chocolate cake variety.

If you now have an unlimited data plan, you will be fine. Another Telus user here can help you with your best plan.

This guy told you that you used up 12 MB? Did you laugh at him?

Why would you laugh? I think it's pretty good customer service that they called and told you. Unlimited plans are the best way to go for BB.

i agree, i use 8-10mb a day, i use my BB like a computer when im not near one,
although that is awesome customer service calling you and letting you know you are over and that there is a better plan for you!
