So, the word on the street is the Vodafone isn’t planning to charge you anything for the BlackBerry Storm if you sign up to an 18 month contract that would run you roughly $70 per month.

This should give the iPhone, which initially costs about $200 up front and roughly $65 per month, a real run for its money.

I’d be willing to bet that the question in the minds of many of you that are reading this post is…

Will The Verizon BlackBerry Storm Be Free?

Although Vodafone holds a 45% stake in Verizon my guess is that the Verizon BlackBerry Storm will cost at least the $199 that the iPhone costs and probably a bit more.
