If you need an alternative to contracts and credit checks, or if you have a BlackBerry and just need service with no complications, check this out. Starting today, SIMPLE Mobile is rolling out new pre-paid, flat rate BlackBerry plans. Whether you bring your own phone (BYOP) or buy one through their affiliate program, you can now get full BIS on your BlackBerry with your choice of two plans.
The first is $50/month which gets you unlimited talk, text (domestic and international), BlackBerry Email (BIS), BBM, access to BlackBerry App World and unlimited Web browsing at up to 3G speeds. The $60 BlackBerry plan contains everything in the $50 plan, but also includes high speed Web browsing at up to 4G speeds. SIMPLE Mobile operates on 1700/2100 AWS bands, so if you want to take advantage of the $60 plan, you will need to be sure your device bands match or you will only be able to achieve 2G (EDGE). In other words, if you are bringing your own phone - A T-Mobile device will be capable 3G/4G but an AT&T device will only be capable of 2G.
With all the disgruntled feelings lately surrounding changes other carriers are making to their plans, such as data caps and increased monthly fees, it's nice to see a move in the opposite direction. Full press release can be found after the break!
