Default T-mobile rate change question

Please Login to Remove!

I am currently on the Blackberry Minutes and Mail plan which gives me 1000 anytime minutes, but no nights and weekends or mobile to mobile. I thought in the beginning that would work out, but I've already used up almost half of my minutes and my billing cycle ends in 3 weeks.

I use the unlimited text and emails a TON, and I think I read somewhere on the boards that as long as you are texting to another phone if you put in the persons # @ whatever carrier and send it out as an email you would not get charged for a text message, is this correct?

The reason I ask is I was thinking I better switch my plan to something that includes the blackberry service + a plan with nights and weekends.

Thoughts?

Email is part of the data plan, and you will not be charged for a text message for email. If you're going to use an IM program be sure it's one that uses the data plan and not text messages or those fees will eat you alive.

I've got a T-Mobile family plan that gives me 1000 shared minutes (my phone and my daughter's), unlimited nights for both and unlimited weekends for both, all for $60 per month. I added unlimited Blackberry service for $20 more per month and I'm doing just fine. I'm cosidering adding text messaging since I'm using it so much. If I did lots of IM I'd go with unlimited texts for $15 per month.
