Ive been thinking about upgrading to blackberry' for my wife and I. I know I need a personal use data plan for 30 dollars but my question is does each phone need its own plan since its under our family plan? Or will I be forking out an extra 60 bucks?
Thanks for the help guys, never had a black berry so Im trying to make the best decision.
Welcome to the forums. I have a BB data plan with 3 lines...90 bucks. I hope that answers your question. Also the data plan does not cover text messaging. Make sure you get a Family Select plan that will include "all you can eat" text messaging.
Thanks for the response !
I was afraid of that answer
I do have the family plan select which covers texting
Id like to upgrade just dont see paying 30 bucks perline for it
I get 20% off my bill but still just cant see it
Thanks again for the response !
Hi there again,
I agree, it's a big price jump in your bill. It's not for everybody. However, if a smartphone is in your plans, ie, a Blackberry or a Windows Mobile based phone, you will be required an extra data plan. Plans for all smartphones are the same I believe at 30 bucks per line. I too get an employee discount through my employer so it helps make my monthly payment a little easier. One thing my family did to help cut costs was that we did away with our land-line phone. No one ever called me on it, except Comcast to try and sell me services that I already had with them (LOL), so that reduced my bills by about 70 bucks a month. I get great service on all my phones all of the time, even inside my home.
It's a big decision if you are like most folks on a budget. Perhaps getting one smartphone line like a Blackberry for now to try and see if you like it might be an answer. Whatever you decide, good luck.
