Default blackberry services?

Please Login to Remove!

I recently bought the blackberry curve 8520 PAYGO

But I didng know you needed to pay 5 a month for the blackberry services to use the 2G internet..

Is there some sort of hack to get around this?

thanks

No I don't think there is. It's illegal using the 2G internet service without paying your carrier I think.

Nope. Gotta have a BB data plan to get BB services. Should have done your homework before you bought.

Nope. You should have done your homework before buying a BB (or any other smartphone for that matter).
