Default Best Blackberry Options for New User?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello!

Would appreciate your honest feedback...I travel every week, and right now it seems that the cheapest option for blackberry service is through T-Mobile, even though they do not have phone service in Omaha, NE yet---

What are the cheapest combinations out there where I can get unlimited e-mail/internet with a small amount of phone minutes without paying an arm and a leg?

Thanks in advance-

JJS

Default cingular

try Cingular. Not sure if they provide service in your area, but they have rollover, free cingular mobile to mobile, free nights and weekends, unlimited data packages ($40 is a little expensive, but depending on the usage, it may be worth it) and other things. I would suggest the 7290.

Cingular does provide data and voice throughout the Lincoln/Omaha area, along with a large portion of the interstate west from Omaha. In Lincoln, a rep here from California had a difficult time with his TMobile Blackberry.

There is also Nextel, the phone service for 300 Free Incoming for 50 dollars monthly and unlimited blackberry 200 text messages for 34.99 a month which comes out to maybe 100 a month... but you have to realize you will get FREE INCOMING! UNLIMITED Direct Connect. Nextel has great service... but you have to Search the service on the 7520 and 7510 some people say they get communication errors etc. It just depends on the person and which 3rd party software you put on it!
