If you want a blackberry I would look at Boost Mobile Blackberry plan Unlimited Everything for 60$ a month...Boost uses Sprint for its Blackberry service...So coverage wouldn't be a problem.

I've been a T-Mobile user for many years now and I really was looking to switch to Metro PCS at one point. The $40 unlimited calls, messages, etc. seemed a little sketchy to me. A few of my friends actually have Metro PCS. They all say the connection isn't that good. I personally don't like the phones..they are hideous.

metro pcs sucks......its alll about droped calls...............they make there money from people that have to make international calling but international calling sucks i had the phone for 1 week and after 4 days i gave up. I payed 299 for a blackeberry and it aint worth ir. Trust me do not get it.

MetroPCS has the Blackberry Curve 8530, $199.00 after
$50.00 rebate. $50.00 a month for the 1st year, unlimited everything. After the 1st year it goes to $60.00 a month which is still a great deal.

They also offer the Samsung Code which is a smartphone on the $50.00 a month plan. Their phone selection is limited, yes, but you can't beat their low monthly rates.

Coverage isn't as bad as others have stated. Although MetroPCS is better suited for an individual line rather then family plans.
