    Why won't sprint let me do this? BIS standalone package..

    I have a blackberry tour on a sprint 500 plan with BIS data package.

    Now I want to move to an Android device and keep my blackberry. All of my work correspondence is done through BBM and e-mail that is on my phone. I want to seperate my personal line from work. So I want to keep the black berry as well.

    What I wanted to do in theory was this.

    Activate a new line (android) with the unlimited 69.99

    and then remove the voice package from my existing line and just keep the BIS data package. I don't need the blackberry for voice... So a family plan is excessive in this case. I just need it for DATA..

    Apparently when I called this can't be done.

    Why not?

    The reason they don't/won't give you standalone data is like most other providers, they now require all voice capable devices (i.e. Smartphones and non-smartphones) to have a voice plan package. Data cards, USB modems and netbooks/tablets are the only devices most providers do standalone data plans and not require a voice plan package.
    If you feel that you have to correct some of my posts for my capitalization of some of my words, then just bear with it. It's just a discussion forum where some may be limited by time to answer in well-versed and eloquent sentences.

    There are Blackberry only plans but they're about $35-$50 and usually only available on a business account.

    Sprint offer a service called relay for the hearing impaired for 29.99 plus 10 premium data. Not sure what your looking to spend a month but your not going to find anything less than 30.00.
