I just called Rogers and they put me through to their Paging and Data department. Anyone that's looking for a cheaper way to PIN message and text message can hook up a RIM 950 to Rogers (Mobitex data network) for only $25/month (assuming you have your own device).
The rep told me that includes 75,000 characters per month.
Anyone else using a RIM 950 and on this plan? Is it a good alternative to paying a hundred a month for the new Blackberrys?
I just got off the phone with PageNet. They want $69.95/month for unlimited RIM 950 service. Apparently that's the only plan they offer. Looks like I'm going with Rogers unless there's another Mobitex provider in Canada?
Anyone know if all RIM 950 devices are compatible with Mobitex networks anywhere? I called Rogers and the rep didn't have a clue about it. I need to buy one from ebay but I'm not sure if they'll be compatible with Rogers.
They both run on the Mobitex network, US or Canada. Are they full compatible?
