Default Will an unlocked 8250 from India work with an O2 Sim in UK??

Please Login to Remove!

I have bought an 8250 from India which is configured with Airtel (carrier). I have unlocked the phone & I am moving to UK for a few months.

Will it work there with O2 or will I have to buy a new phone from there?

Also do I have to go in for an 18month contract or will it work with an O2 simplicity. Only Sim. Pay Monthly scheme? I am not going to be there for too long so i dont want to opt for the 18mnth contracts.

Will I get unlimited internet usuage?

Please help me as I am leaving soon & want to know if my phone will work or not.

Thanks.

There is not 8250.
There is a 8520.
It will work as they are also sold in the UK.

It will work on a SIM only from O2, as you can add the Blackberry data to a SIM only on O2.

Thanks for the information.

Will it work with the Pay Monthly (Simplicity scheme) of O2 or do i have to use Pay as you go?

Yes that what I said.
The Simplicity is the SIM ONLY plan. i.e. its a pay monthly no long contract plan.
it wont work with pay as you go, as payg dont have BB data plans on them with O2.
