    Hi.

    I’m not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I’m moving to the States from overseas (Philly) and find all these different carrier and plans very confusing. Can somebody suggest a plan? I already have an unlocked Blackberry and am hoping to use that without getting locked into a 2 year contract. Here is what I’m looking for:

    - Voice plan (I saw Sprint’s free incoming call plan which looks pretty nice). Would be nice if I can still use in other States without getting charged for roaming.
    - Blackberry plan – either BIS or BES.
    - Optional, but would be very nice: tethering my Blackberry to my laptop so I can surf the net that way.

    Thanks!

    George :)

    Hi George I am pretty much guessing your BB is a GSM model correct? If so then you can't use it on Sprint or Verizon since they are CDMA carriers, which leaves you with AT&T or T-Mobile.
    As for roaming fees in the US, all the national carriers give free roaming where allowed between carriers and unless you do an excessive amt of roaming in 1 area with AT&T for 3 months straight, you would be fine.
    They all have BB plans so that's not an issue & if you do have a GSM phone then you could use the phone when you go back oversea's for anything.

    Hope this helps you some.
