When you purchase and activate a PAYG BlackBerry from Orange, you are automatically subscribed to the BlackBerry data plan which gives you Internet access. There is no way to bypass payment as your mobile will be disconnected should you choose not to top up.

If this was from your own carrier, as an upgrade etc, they don't come with SIM cards, because they know you have one.
The plan for PAYG and blackberry internet service will be linked to your SIM card and number.
So, you need to use your own SIM card.

interesting.
Well, as the only SIM you have is the one you have, then you'll have to use it!
I believe theres a number to text to activate the BB data plan.
