I have a Blackberry 7250 on Verizon and I have the $29.95 unlimited data and email package. You need to have the phone on a voice plan in addition to the data plan, I have two other phones on Verizon so I just added the Blackberry to the Family Share Plan for $9.99 a month.

package because I am using a blackberry.
My first question is do I really need a data package, I got the $24.99 since
I could not get my phone turned on without one.
My second question is, are there cheaper packages than $24.99, I heard 71764
plan is free, when I called the people at Verizon they started to question
how I know these codes instead of helping me reduce my phone bill expenses.
So is there a better option for me with blackberry.
Third question with my contract coming up for negotiation in May, I am
hoping to get a BlackBerry 8830 World Edition Smartphone. What would be my
best negotiation strategy to keep my expenses as low as possible.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
