your bill should be at exactly $140 before taxes and other govt fees. $110 for a family share 700 min select play plus $30 data plan for your berry unless you signed up for bes server berry which is $45. Do you have insurance? its 7.99 for bbs and any phone that has an html based web browser. What is sales tax in your location? You may be paying for exactly what you signed up for. IF you go to Cell Phones,Prepaid Cell Phones,Cell Phone Plans - Verizon Wireless and check your online account you can click on view my bill and see a full pdf that explains your bill. when you look at your bill check for 1. equipment charges (things you billed to your acct when you upgraded), and 2. there is a place that shows data and voice charges.

Hope this helps

I know this is from a very old post but the bogo offer is back and now ends mid oct. there was a previous sale that ended in june but they are rerunning it and i actually think its nation wide. You have the option of purchasing any bb and getting another for free. Or you have the option of getting any other device of equal or lesser value for free after mail in rebate. the best deal though is if you get a bb tour you can get a netbook completely free. pm me if you are have any questions on pricing etc. I can help you pick something out or I can at least point anyone in the right direction.

Wow full of questions tonight... :lmao: alright I think I can cover this for Nepperz! Tetherberry: it would be a no no with VZW... There is a way to use it without getting extra fees tact on. You have to ramp up your use over an extended period of time and not exceed 5gbs... What they day is unlimited isn't really unlimited!

That would be if you paid it all up front. Or you could extend it out over the 1 or 2 year contract if you would rather make payments. For specific #'s, you can ask Nepperz in the morning. I hope this helps and ask away if you have anymore...

If you have a ne2 credit of $100 you would want to consider possibly doing a bogo (buy one get one) option. you could get the tour for $50 after rebate and get either a netbook or another tour for free. I understand though if you dont need another bb you might consider any phone under $150. even though you are getting the tour for $50 you still have the option of any phone under $150. Its an awesome promo in your situation. You are very lucky. I can break it down better after seeing your account. pm me for my work number if you have questions about sales options.

Welcome to BBOS htessmer04! Thank you for jumping on these questions, but I would like to point out that these are at the beginning of the thread and substantially old. This is :haha: actually my post about 5 months ago... I have since changed and added a BB to my bill. The dates are at the top of the posts. As I said before, welcome and thank you for jumping in and answering questions... :fing02:

To be a little more informational on the whole "5 star" thing; what "5 star" is. "5 star" allows us in the vzw sales dept to comb accounts for things like: text, mb usage, and downloads to help us find customers who go over on their plans. It helps the sales side because we get paid commission and it helps the customers because we are only calling you if you have overages. now occasionally we will get "5 star" campaigns for customers who are out of contract and may be interested in a certain "device" i.e. storm2/pre/touch pro2 based on what device and what features you are using currently. So in short if you have a bb and are coming upon an upgrade or early upgrade you may be in a sales person's "5 star" campaign call list.

Well if any canadians are having this issue I'll give an answer anyway, lol.

If you want a good texting phone though you could get a Samsung Integrity for free if you talk to the right person, yours truely. lol. The canada plans arent bad though and if you are considering using vzw for a couple years its worth the contract.
Great find jnepsa!! I too hate to see wrong info spewed from the mouths of the ignorant.

Just in case you dont already have insurance and for anyone else out there that doesnt and wants it, you can currently add insurance to any line whether you just bought the phone or bought it a year ago. Asurion has a promo right now that allows anyone with verizon to add insurance to an existing account until the end of oct. so say you broke your phone today and dont have insurance, you can add insurance now and claim it in 3 days. typically you have to add insurance within the first 15 days of purchasing the device and you can't make a claim for 30 days. So Jump on it people if you need insurance.
