Default New to Blackberry and confused !

Please Login to Remove!


I am new to blackberry and am looking at buying a Blackberry 9000 Bold. I have never had a pay monthly contract before and would prefer to stay away from them (unless really quite cheap) as i don't use many texts / minutes. However i realise many of the high tech phones i am interested in such as the blackberry 9000 bold are not available on pay as you go, right ?

I shopped around a bit and have found an 02 tariff of 15 / month on a 24 month contract including 250 texts and 75 minutes / month.

However i am now confused about Bolt ons ! I wish to get something which will allow me to check emails and browse the web (html preferred) without excessive daily charges, but i don't know the difference between Blackberry Unlimited (10 / month) and Blackberry Pay as You Use.

02 also offer a 7.50 / month bolt on for unlimited wifi. Would i be better selecting Pay as You Use and getting this bolt on or having Blackberry Unlimited ?

Sorry if this has been explained in other threads, and thanks for your time.
