    On mine it's like 30 for a plan and 40 for the data, so 70 is a bit steep.

    I guess the way it goes for a BB. I could complain but no one would listen to me. haha

    Lets put some perspective on this. We as Canadians allow this. We don't question, we just go along with it. Yes, Bell does have a cheap data plan at $40.00, but then you have all of the other charges on top of that that add up very quickly.

    Another charge that we just accept is the system access fee. We pay this every month. We bitch and moan about it but at the end of the day we still pay it, or no phone service. Most US carriers do not charge a monthly system access fee and they enjoy they're service, but we as Canadians are told it is a necassary evil in order to keep service going.

    As long as we tolerate this, nothing will change. We will still pay the same fees if not more each month and accept any increases with a frown. As with the increased cable fees (blatant and poorly disguised money grab) that we are trying to block through public awareness, the same needs to be done with cell carriers.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Have a wonderful day

    But they dont offer unlimited data on bell anymore either.. yes, $40 was a decent data charge for unlimited. but now it only gets us about 500-1000 mb

    And No, i don't need "unlimited" data just like no-one needs "unlimited" text, but they still offer that don't they?

    During the summer I was working for 4 months where there was no wireless or wired internet available... I tethered to my laptop, and blew through over 2Gb of data in 1 month.

    The point is, they are charging the same now for 500mb as they did 2 years ago for unlimited.... how is that fair?

    Especially when the rest of the planet is still offering Unlimited Data plans, for less money.
    If tethering is the issue just purchase the license for tetherberry it works great!
