Question help plz? :(

Please Login to Remove!

okay i'm new to this whole thing and am not really sure where this thread should go anyway so sorry, but my question is;

i am a verizon customer and have a basic phone with like three other phone lines on an unlimited plan with like, 20$ unlimited text and all that good jazz.

BUTTTT, i want a blackberry.. storm preferably. so, i call verizon and they say i HAVE to purchase this onstar feature for like whatever a month and i just don't want to do that. i want a blackberry, with a data plan and i was wondering.. AROUND how much more would i be paying a month to switch to this blackberry? i'm GUESSING the data plan would maybe include unlimited texting so i could just knock off that.

i know i'm completely blackberry retarded. but i've tried to search this question for a minute and can't really get a good answer. thanks so much for your time!

I'm not too familiar with Verizon but I'm pretty sure the the data plan does not include unlimited texting.

No a BB Data Plan does not include Text, they are 2 seperate plans. To find out what you will be paying you need to go to the VZW website and check the plans.

You need:
1. Minutes Plan, for talking.
2. BlackBerry add-on data plan.
3. Texting plan, if wanted.

Alternately, you can get all these things bundled together in a BlackBerry package plan, starting at $100. But, like, you'll have to figure out what you want, and like, extra lines and stuff.

"Wow" is now overused. Therefore, I will use "Magic bananas" instead.
