Welcome to the forums! If you want to buy Blackberry phones, your only choice of individual plans are Nationwide basic or Select. The Connect and Premium plans are not available because of the Blackberry data plan that is "required" for all Blackberry phones. The Connect and Premium plans are for non-smartphones to connect to the internet. The NW Basic does not include unlimited text, picture and video messages and the Select plans do include unlimited messages. After you decide on Select or Basic plan, then you pay for the $29.99 data plan for Blackberry Internet Service (unlimited web, chat, emails for personal use). If you want plan that include voice minutes, Verizon have it also. For more information go to Verizon website and check out Blackberry phones.
