My contract with Sprint ended in February, so I'm looking for a new service. It sort of hard because I need a two-line sort of contract that included several features without being pricey. Features like unlimited internet, test messaging, pictures, etc. I've looked T-mobile, Verizon, Cricket, and and another whose name I can't think of right. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure about being 2 lined phone... I know that Nextel is the only company that I knew of that had the capability of having 2 seperate numbers (lines) on a single phone... I could be wrong here... I'd like to know if there's an other company that offers this... That being said, I have t-mobile myself... I have blackberry pearl 8120 & I have their unlimited plan... That includes unlimited voice calling & unlimited messaging for $99.99... Then I have unlimited blackberry plan for $19.99 which includes unlimited internet access & unlimited emails... With tax & fees, it should come out to around $140/month, depends on where you live & your local taxes, but I do work for a place where I get a discount on my phone bill... It's not much, 15%, but it brings the bill down to around $116/month... Better in my pocket then theirs, I always say... It seems much initially but the way I use the phone, it actually works out pretty good... I do have a landline @ home but that's only for DSL for the internet... Which brings me to another point... T-Mobile has an option that lets you call unlimited calls if you have wireless router... If you don't have unlimited plan, it's additional $10/month... T-Mobile is a decent company... But I've heard some people complain about their coverage so if I were you, I'd check their coverage around where you live before getting the phone...

Oh, I apologize. I meant like "Family-Line" where two people share a plan but have separate phones. Looks like I should take a close look at T-mobile, thanks.

If you're looking for a family plan, I'd definately look into T-Mobile... They do have this thing called "fave5" family plan... They just recently made a small minor change to their "fav 5" family plan... "Fav 5" plan basically means each phone of the family plan gets to pick 5 phone numbers & have unlimited callings to those 5 numbers... The change they made was that before, if you were on this plan, mobile to mobile wasn't included but now they do... So, if you have "fav 5" family plan, all the phone calls to t-mobile phone numbers are free as well as 5 numbers you pick as your "fav"s... One nice thing about T-Mobile is that if you have unlimited mobile to mobile, then checking your voice-mail becomes free as well because they consider calling "your own phone number" to check your voice-mail as mobile to mobile call... I know sprint will deduct minutes out of your bucket even if you have unlimited mobile to mobile... Don't ask me why, I don't know, ha ha ha... I'm not sure if anybody else does this as well but I know for sure T-Mobile's checking voice-mail from your handset is free if you have mobile to mobile... I hoped this helped a little...

I love my T-mobile service. There are no hassles when I want to make changes, and the price is good. They even have a home phone service now if you have their cell phone. I only pay $10 per month for my home phone with voice mail.
