BB for youngsters? seriously!

We have all seen BB advertisements saying the new range of smartphones are for students,college goers & youngsters. But why are the data plans so expensive and what purpose does it serve ? Its like you are contradicting yourself,most of the "students" don't buy it because of this drawback. Insane !

Re: BB for youngsters? seriously!

The new BB10 devices don't require BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) so it might not be as expensive as you think.
