Verizon to offer prepaid plan for BlackBerry devices?
According to a tipster for Berry Scoop who has been "dead on" in the past, Verizon is about to offer a prepaid plan for certain BlackBerry devices. The plan is expected to start sometime in the next 90 days and will add $35 a month onto the cost of the voice plan. Unfortunately, we don't know which handsets will be included. As we reported yesterday, Boost Mobile has recently started a prepaid plan for the BlackBerry Curve with the phone costing $249 and a package of $60 per month covering unlimited voice and data.

Metro and Boost will be a much better deal compared to inPulse especially with the new price tiers

Dude inPulse? We stopped selling inPulse plans a little over a year ago and we just launched our new monthly prepay plans a week ago. Keep up man. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but alteast try to base it on accurate information.

inPulse or whatever it's called now is expensive w/o the $35 data plan.

This really pisses me off. I just returned the Boost Mobile BB because I didn't get that good of coverage where I live and I paid out over $300 for the TMOBILE BB complete kit (Prepaid offered by best buy only). I wanted Verizon because their coverage is awesome in my area and now I read this crap!

VZW is a better network. If you want a prepaid smartphone solution that includes free VZW to VZW calling + VZW's fast reliable 3G data this is for you. No doubt about this, this is a Sprint/Boost killer.

Unlimited everything prices Boost $60/month flat fee TMO $80 + $5 control charge + taxes= Around $93/month VZW $94 + $30= Around $125/month But, for reliable network coverage is worth the extra $$$ I guess. Unless, VZW has a "prepaid coverage" map that is different from the regular coverage map. Most Carriers do except TMO. The Complete BB Plan with TMO is actually considered flexpay instead of prepay.

www.vzw.com/coverage Click the Prepaid button in bottom right. It is a diff map, but other than a few roaming areas, don't see a lot of major differences
