Boost Mobile has released their new prepaid unlimited BlackBerry plan (via RIMarkable) which is awesome but has one problem. They are only offering the dated BlackBerry Curve 8330 at a upfront cost of $249.99. The awesome part is that the plan is $60/month from practically unlimited everything except for BES. The unlimited plan includes unlimited calling along with web browsing, email, and a couple other features. Check out the full feature list after the jump. You can find all the details on Boost Mobile’s website.
In a similar vein the team @BerryScoop got word that Verizon is also working on a prepaid BlackBerry plan. There is no word on if it will be limited to older BlackBerrys but it will cost about $35 more than a prepaid voice plan.
This is the ultimate option if you want all the features the BlackBerry Curve 8330 smartphone has to offer without being tied down by a contract. With unlimited talk, text, web and email on the BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited plan, you stay connected when you’re on the go. The BlackBerry smartphone strikes the perfect balance between functionality, design and usability by offering phone, personal email, contacts, calendar, expandable memory, GPS Navigation and enhanced web browsing as well as allowing you to enjoy your music, videos and pictures along the way.
