I beleive you will be paying for the family voice but the Data each will have to be seperate. I am not sure if you will get the discount for voice on the second.

Data plans cannot be shared. So you are looking at $90 before voice.

I have the Cingular family plan at $99/mth and the BB UL plan for $45/mth. Also have 3 additional family members at $10/mth. Also have exchangemymail at $20/mth for BES. As stated, BB plans are individual, cannot be shared.

I have 2 8700C's on Cingular (Mine and My Wife), it is $45 per device for BB Data Plan PLUS you voice. It still is $10 per phone after the "Master" to Add-A-Phone on the voice plan.

I will say this.
I was talking with my in-store rep who's been very straight up with me in the past, and treats me like I am her only customer, and I only have one line told me that Cingular has passed down that they are looking at a data family plan for its prosumer customers. It'd be 15 a line instead of 10 but it'd only be 1 blackberry data, and 1 voice plan for 2 devices. I don't know how truthful that is or how far away it is but that is what she told me.

Blackberry units will not be able to "Share" a Blackberry data plan. Each PIN is billed by RIM to the carrier. They aren't about to lose money.

If Cingular charged $60 for two data lines ($45 + $15) they wouldn't be loosing money. T-mobile is $30 per line ...... 2x30=60.

T-Mobile is $30 a line w/ BES...its only $20 a line w/ BIS/BWC (my family has 4 lines, two of which are BB's).

Excuse my ignorance, but what's the point of BES now that most carriers allow full TCP/IP access?

Charging less for BB service = losing money. Simple math.

T-Mobile can't be beat for Family plans. Their BB plans are the cheapest, EDGE suppport, sms/mms is unlimited to ALL lines under the plan under a promo plan for $9.99 per month (just take a quick look and see what other carriers gouge you for on this)....

There should be a FAQ that covers this but full wireless sync, intranet access (useless if you have hosted BES but handy if your company has a BES and take advantage of this feature), integration with Exchange to manage (issue, accept, change) meeting requests, GAL lookup, ability to push IT policies to handhelds if you have your own BES, ability to remotely kill a device if you have your own BES, ability to push updates to devices if you have your own BES etc etc etc. Most aren't that much of a plus to individual users but my SO and I use meeting requests a lot to schedule things for each other.

Enterprise activation is nice because it pushes a lot of settings and content to a new or replacement device. It's also a BES-only feature.
