So, not really so great a deal (the wifi calling).
GPS on verizon also costs 10$ extra per month. That's the beauty of the iphone everything it comes wit on the phone works through your data plan so when you want to use a feature you simply use it. Instead of verizon's plan of hey look at all this stuff you can use for a fee. It comes with it but cost you per month.
2 year contract = 24 months
24 months x 10$ per month for wifi calling = 240$
add gps and your talking 480$ or 80$ more than that "overpriced" iPhone for 2 features. You get what you pay for with iphone upfront rather than them miling you for the life of your contract to pay for the device and it's features.
Blackbeery consumer plans last time I checked from verizon start at 80$ per month while iphone starts at 60$
20$ x 24 months = 480$
960$ extra for what you have listed.
It is also 15$ extra per month for unlimited internet acces.
15$ x 24 = 360$
So now we are at 1320$ extra for a blackberry
Add the 200-300 dollars for the cost of the phone and we're talking 1500$ more than an iphone for the same base minutes of 450 plus the blackberry has no free text messages and you can only get plans for in messages not out. iphone has plans for in and out together.
By the way the iPhone is much better than a BB and over time will gain more features without having to buy a new model or pay extra.
