Verizon Has A New BlackBerry Data Plan

It would appear that Verizon customers have another choice when it comes to BlackBerry data plans. The Email and Web for BlackBerry plan appears to be a BIS only plan similar to the Sprint BlackBerry Power Vision Plan which launches on November 4th.

The Email and Web for BlackBerry Plan features include:

  • Your email will be “pushed” automatically to your device.
  • Access up to ten POP3 and IMAP email accounts, including Yahoo!® Mail, AOL® Mail, Windows Live® Hotmail®, and Verizon.net.
  • Easy email account setup.
  • Voice Usage: Per your voice calling plan.

Like the Sprint plan, the Verizon Email and Web for BlackBerry plan won’t allow you to hook your device up to BES and costs $30 per month.

I don’t generally look at BlackBerry data plans all that often so I don’t know for sure that Email and Web for BlackBerry plan is a brand new offering. I haven’t heard, however, of a $30 Verizon BlackBerry plan before today.

    Do you need to have a voice plan or can you have the data plan as a stand alone like sprints?

    sounds like the verizon fat cats have been forced to follow the industry leaders.

    Consumer knowledge IS power, as more and more consumers learn the truth, verizon’s anti-consumer games will more and more be taken away. Anyone remember pre-WNP? How verizon delayed it for years, was fighting it tooth and nail, yet when the truth came out and the press got ahold of it verizon turned tail and then publicly started the FUD machines that they supported WNP, another in the long line of verizon history of anti-consumer action.

    The $30 BIS plan doesn’t allow you to hook up to BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
