Blackberry Data Plan now possible?
Hello all,

I have a Blackberry Curve 8900 which is SIM UNLOCKED and i'm on Virgin Mobile and have been using it just for the basic calls and texts for a few weeks.

When i bought it stupidly I didnt know that Blackberry Data plans couldnt be used on Virgin lol, BUT I have now seen that Virgin Mobile (UK) have now started to sell the Blackberry 8520 on 18 & 24 month contracts as of December.

So...does this mean that now Virgin will have a Blackberry Data Plan of its own? And as a Virgin mobile customer using a Blackberry will I be able to use it?

Oh and also, as i'm relatively new to this Blackberry stuff, when I imported my SIM contacts into this handset it automatically set each contact to (Work), is there a way I could change this?

Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you! :smile:

Best thing to do is contact Virgin. Be sure and tell them what model you are using. If they are seeling blackberrys, then it makes sense that that they are selling blackberry data service, of course; but confirm that your model is supported.

On the contacts question, you will have to manually edit the contacts, unless there is something new I don't know about.
