Default cheapest blackberry data plan?

Please Login to Remove!

my cellphone/blackberry bill is right now at $91 a month (including taxes) at tmobile. This is a 700 minute family plan and unlimited data on the blackberry. We use 250 minutes each month, so I was gonna put my wife on a prepaid plan and cut mine to the bare minimum for my blackberry. They said it would be $40-50 a month still! Is there anything cheaper for just blackberry email/net? What about a small amount of minutes with it? Any help greatly appreciated!

I believe TMO has the lowest BB rates, so I don't think you will be able to do any better.

T-Mobile's BIS data plan is $20 a month. That's as low as it goes along with having a voice plan.

Unsupported Browser You could also use this phone plan. Other than that, it's as cheap as it gets.

There is a BB plan with just data and email only, but it's $39.99.

With tmobile it's whatever your voice plan is plus 20 bucks for blackberry service. That's as cheap as it's gonna get. Other carriers like AT&T and Verizon charge 40 bucks or more.
