Default Pay as you go sims

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone,

Please can someone tell me, is it possible to use pay-as-you-go sim cards in blackberry devices? and if so do you still get full functionality i.e email/web browsing?

I specifically want to use an O2 pay-as-you-go sim card.

Any help is much appreciated.

Many Thanks,

MoTo

To date, I don't believe there are any pay as you go SIM card which also offer BlackBerry e-mail/web functionality.

In order to use e-mail/Internet you MUST have a BlackBerry Data Plan on your account. Since Pay As You Go SIMS do not have this, all you will get is voice and SMS.
