BlackBerry Pearl 8220 from Rogers

There’s been some speedy solidifcation of the BlackBerry Pearl 8220 prices that were leaked earlier this morning, with sources confirming a $49.99 promotional deal on the handset with a three-year plan, which will eventually go up to $99.99. Rogers reps will be pimping this one out with a $45 student plan which will include

  • 450 Weekday Minutes
  • Unlimited Evenings and Weekends starting at 6pm
  • MY5 Canada-Wide (Unlimited talk, SMS, and MMS to any five numbers in Canada)
  • Unlimited Local Incoming Minutes
  • $5 off Value Pack for duration of contract


The plans, which need to include e-mail and a Value Pack, total to $75 and up, which, sad as it may be, is standard for Canadian students.

    What exactly do you have a problem with? The device cost or the ‘student plan’? I actually think $50 for the Pearl 8220 is perfect.

    If Verizon had the 8230 in the US, I’d buy it to replace my Pearl and Curve in a heartbeat. Looks like the perfect pocket sized BlackBerry to me.

    it may be alot for the plan, but honestly you are getting alot for your money, $75 would get you your student plan and 6GB of data monthly, and add $10 and you can add 2500 texts, call display, voicemail, and more…. $85 is pretty good when you look at what the 8220 has to offer. i’ll be picking one up for sure.
