Default I Need Help Please!!

Ok I am with sprint and I have a sero plan. The plan includes 1200mins with data, m2m, and nights starting at 7. I have a treo 700wx which is giving me hell with all of the last 5 bluetooth headset, I have tried. Also the windows os is unstable and crashes all the time. I have went from the 700w, 700p, 6700, and now the 700wx. I used my sister's 7290 and fell in love with it. I would really like a camera blackberry but I can do without till the 8300 comes out. I dont care for Wifi. I do love the speed of evdo, I must admit. I also just learned that the blackberry uses a different data plan from the usually ones the regular pdas use. Sprint and Cingular coverage is not that great here in NW florida. I would like unlimited push email and internet access. I only use about 800 mins a month but I would like to have a plan with 1000. What company can give me fast data speeds, coverage, and a good price? Also are there any discounts on the bb data plans??

CCC, TMobile has a 1000 min call plan with BB Data Plan attached, I think, (and you have to check your area) for about $79.00.

The TMO BB Data Plan Unlimited with a voice calling package is $19.99 added to another voice calling package, about as low as you are going to get.

You're going to have to determine who offers adequate coverage for your needs. Pick your carrier based on that and go from there. Browsing speed differ much on current BB's (though tethering is different and not affected by the processor/OS bottleneck) when it comes to EVDO vs EDGE.

If you like EV-Do, look at Verizon, as they have a similar network to Sprint. But as takeshi said, look at the coverages, talk to friends, relatives, coworkers etc,. amd see what they have to say. Once you decide on the best carrier, then you can decide on a phone.
