I currently have the Blackberry Curve 8330. I broke the charging port on the phone, and do not have full insurance on the phone, so it will cost me to both repair the phone and buy a new phone. I am a teenager and do not have the money at the time for either a repair or a new phone. My mom had an old phone that she is letting me borrow until I have the money to repair my phone. I was wondering if it will cost for me to degrade from my blackberry to a motorola razor. I have a family member who told me it would, I don't understand how that is possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If all that is wrong with your Blackberry 8330 is the charging port is broken, you can purchase a charging dock, sometimes called a charging pod, for less than 20 bucks, even less on Amazon.com. Then you can set your device in the charging dock to recharge it. Just a thought.
You may need to call customer service to switch devices though. I had to call and have them manually change my plan back to the basic one before I could activate. But no, it won't cost you anything ... it'll save you $30/month.
I did this very thing and got hit with minute overage charge. There was data that had not been added to my account that got added after I removed the BB. I want to do this again as I am interested in an iPod touch. It will do most of the things my BB does and my old razor will do the phone part.
I need to know how many days I need to leave the BB off so I do not get those charges again.
