Default Iphone VS BlackBerry Bold totally unfair plan!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,


Some of the people I know, they have Iphone. When I asked them about their Data Plan, they said they have 6 GB and they pay monthly for everything $70 while me and the rest who have BlackBerry Bold 500 MB and we fairly pay $65 and other $75.

and If I want exter date is so exp!! too much money ---- WHY!!! While the internet some times is faster in Iphone.

For me I really don't like Iphone that much but how come they have that much of Data while BB B most of the time used for business. So, they should make the same plan at least.

I am with Rogers Company "Canada", I don't know if anybody have the same issue in U.S or not.

I am looking forwards to hearing from you guys.

Peace every one of now.

We do not have this issue in the US.

All carriers have totally unlimited data plans at around the same price, although some of them have soft caps of 5 GB.

How much do you pay per minute after your finish ur plan minutes?! Also, what is the average minutes that companies give 250, 350, 500, 1000.

Thank you in advance,
Most carriers charge something like $0.40/min. once plan minutes are used up. Most carriers have plans with 500, 1000, 3000, 5000, and unlimited minutes. I know that seems like a lot of minutes, but unlike the rest of the world, we are charged both directions for calls.
