How much is a Blackberry plan for AT&T?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about getting the new Blackberry Bold 9900, but I have no idea how much a BB plan is. Do any of you know how much it would cost to have unlimited text + internet?

AT&T does not have Unlimited data unless you're a Grandfathered customer with a Smartphone. You can choose from $15 for 200MB, $25 for 2GB, and $45 for 4GB. The lowest plan would be $54.99 per month for a Individual with 450 anytime minutes and 200MB of data.

Depending on your budget I'd recommend 450 minutes, unlimited messaging and the 2GB data plan, as that also gives you Unlimited mobile to mobile calling to any cell phone provider in the US and the 450 is only used to call Land Lines.

BIS =/= Data plan

I think it's 30 dollars for BIS only and 35 dollars for BIS + 4MB data or 60 dollars for BIS + 4GB

http://www.wireless.att.com/businesscenter/popups/general/available-data-rate-plans.jsp (Smartphone Plans - Blackberry)

PS: This doesn't include the phone or a call plan. It's just BIS. Which you can add $20 for unlimited text above the data plan.

But why use text if u can use whatsapp or BBM. =)

i would go buy just the phone from amazon or ebay

go to walmart pick up a nokia E71 (E71 is key, no other sim will work) +straight talk plan

use the sim from that in your BB

unlimited data+everything for pretty cheap.

I don't think that would work as the carrier has to have set up their network to support the BlackBerry Internet Services. Straight Talk most likely has not set this up because they don't sell BlackBerry's. Since they most likely don't support BIS you won't be able to use the BlackBerry web browser, use BBM, and any other service that uses the BlackBerry servers, which is pretty much all of the services. There are third party alternatives for some of this stuff, but not all of it, like BBM.
