     It doesn’t look like it on the site, the data part is different based on blackberry vs. non blackberry devices, but the plans seem to apply to all devices!

    I talk to the agent this morning, i can’t switch to 40$ promo, all iphone users cannot downgrade below 50$ monthly plan. She said my 55$ flex is the best plan + 8$ caller ID.
