Default Best UK PAYG package/network for blackberry use

Please Login to Remove!


Have been using my N95 8gb recently for the emails when on the commute to/from work.

It's not working out as the amount of stuff ive had to do has shot up! And i simply need a QWERTY keyboard & bigger screen to manage the stuff.

Picked up a 8707v off ebay for 45.

Plan to use with a Pay As You Go vodaphone sim. As i'm currently on 3-hutchinson.

I'd have paid for a 150 curve (with camera, etc. like the look of that.), but 3-uk dont work in a non-3g phone.

I dont want to use the inferior 8707v as my main phone, as i love my n95 8gb for everything else, so will keep that with my 13 month remaining 3-uk contract!! (note, i also hate the look of the new 3g Bold, so i cant really have a blackberry as my main device!)

I therefore will be needing just a pay as you go sim for this 8707v! I'll just keep the blackberry in my bag to use on the commute & when im out throughout the day, so will ONLY use it for emails & internet, no calls or texts (as ill have my N95 8gb for this!).

Was wondering if anyone could suggest a good network to use for great deals on pay as you go internet (any "pay 10/month for unlimited internet use" packages available to PAYG customers on any UK networks???). the 8707v is locked to vodaphone. But i have hundreds of X-sim's! So can use one to unlock the bugger if need calls!
