Arrow NY/NJ Blackberry Roll Call (come in here!)

Please Login to Remove!

Just wanted to get an idea of blackberry users in the area:

1. Which model BB do you have?
2. Who is your service provider?
3. How is the voice service?
4. What plan do you have and how much does it cost per month?
5. What City do you live in?
6. Any other comments (good or bad)

for example:

1. 7100t
2. Tmobile
3. Voice sucks. other people always say it sounds like i'm standing next to a moving train.
4. $59.99/mo for unlimited bb, unlimited sms, unlimited internet, & 1000 min
5. NYC
6. love the BB features and the plan is very well priced but can't really use it as a phone will probably return it

1. 7250
2. Nextel
3. I like the plan, but a little pricey, just found out that Unlimited means 10mb
4. $45.99 300 Daytime Minutes, Unlimeted Nights and Weekends, Unlimited Nationwide Direct Connect, $42.99 Unlimited Blackberry
5. Deptford, NJ (just outside Philadelphia)
6. Love the phone and plan, just can't wait for inigrated HTML browsing with BWS, and intigrated Instant Messenger.

Tell them they are false advertising the plan then, as it says in black and white that "Included Data = Unlimited". If they need to stipulate what kind of data, then they need to do so. Otherwise, they are misrepresenting their offering, thus crossing the boundary of a legal mistake.

1. 7250 (w/Plantronics M3000 Bluetooth headset)
2. Verizon
3. Voice service is great. I've had AT&T/Cingular, Tmobile & now Verizon. No one in the area beats Verizon's voice quality.
4. 2-line family plan with 1 data plan. 1500 Shared mintutes for $90 & Unlimited data for $40.
5. Live on LI, work in NYC.
6. Love the full Qwerty keypad, but would like a little slimmer form factor (like the Treo 650). While I know RIM places it's priority on security, I'd like a few more bells & whistles. If I'm going to carry around such a large device, I'd like it to do a little more (i.e. camera, MP3, etc...)
My main gripe is that I pay for "unlimited" data, but WebClient comes with only 10MB (upgraded to 25MB by Verizon on request). I can get 1 GIG for free from Yahoo & 2 GIG from Google, but I pay $40-45 for 10-25MB!! Doesn't seem to make much sense...

The problem is that they do not say "unlimited data". They say "unlimited BlackBerry email".
