Default Best UK Carrier...

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,

I'm going to get a 9700 next month and I've been looking at various deals in the UK. I want a contract between 20 and 30 per month.

Can anyone advise who offer the best Blackberry package out of the O2 Blackberry Unlimited, 3 Blackberry Pack or T-mobile Blackberry Boosters. Do any of them charge for apps like Facebook or Blackberry Messenger? Do any of them charge to use the BB browser instead of a WAP data service?

Thanks (and sorry if i've posted in the wrong place )

The best carrier is the one that works best for you where you live, work, and play.

BlackBerry Messenger is always included in BlackBerry data plans, and Facebook is also usually included. Most carriers do not charge for using the BlackBerry browser.

Im on t-mobile, You need both Blackberry booster AND internet in your plan, costing you more.
3 have only recently begun supporting blackberries, I wouldn't go for them.
The cheapest deal is O2, as its free on plans 20+ (otherwise its 10 per month).

But this still doesn't help if none of those providers works in the areas I mentioned.

True, but that's rare.
