This lasted three days. I liked the Razr and even modded it to activate the video camera and other customizations; however, I found myself constantly using the BB for data, email, and Berry 411 lookups. I cannot remember the last time I dialed 411. The lack of a clip holster like previous Moto V-series really bothered me as well has having to decide which device to pair with the HSB-850 headset.

What I wish the 7290 has was something along the lines of the V3's mobile tools. After listening to the BB rings etc., the V3 was like the jump from the Victrola to solid state stereo. I suppose I would change the BB so that I could edit MP3's and play them as ringtones on the BB, but I do not think I will ever go back to a cell phone again.

That's interesting as I thought all GPRS was the same.

Would it be any faster using MDS from BES?

For those reasons, and the fact that incoming calls on BBs always get directed to voicemail while using the data network, are why use the data only plan.

I'm sure there are other reasons why people will order the data only plans...
I agree with you and I continue to use my Smartphone for the same reasons. However, I am verging on moving over completely to the BB so that my pockets are lighter.

I believe this would only happen on CDMA networks as GSM/GPRS networks pause the session when a call or SMS comes through, I think they are given priority over data.

I pay about 30 to 35 a month for 3000 minutes and unlimited BB data with nextel. I work for an indirect dealer. I think i get discounts with our other carriers voice and data plans. But i have not asked since we are provided with nextel. pink

$59 for voice + $35 for unlimited data on Nextel. For a while, they were offering the unlimited data ($45 i think) plan for $35 (same price as 3MB plan) if you signed up for a National Incoming plan -- how could I pass that up?!?!
