Activating a SmartPhone with NO Data Plan

Want a Smart Phone but do not want to subscribe to Data plan??

I was faced with a problem the other day with one of our clients – they wanted to get a Blackberry for a user – however – this user did not require a data plan. They wanted him to have a blackberry to keep all company hardware uniform for internal reasons –  however  – they were discouraged at the price of the hardware due to not having a data plan!

Example Rogers BB 9800 $99.99 on a 3 yr term with data – with no data plan the unit will be $424.99 on a 3 yr term  —  In order to oblige the client with desired pricing – and follow the system guidelines set out by the carrier –  we utilized the following solution!

“Travelling With Your Phone This Summer”

In response to a comment on the video “Travelling With Your Phone This Summer”

The COMMENT was:
“Great! could you also talk about cell phone usage abroad and especially electrical converters and charging? I travel or support those who do and it gets dicey. The converter and adapter throws people, changing sims, which carrier and costs. I usually advise skype but that’s not for everyone. Explaining GSM, CDMA and whatever the Japan uses and my audience just turns glassy eyed.  Thanks! Keep up the good work.”
