Default want to buy bb in UK, need help

Please Login to Remove!

I am thinking to get a 8100 in UK, but not sure how to get a good offer. I would like to use MSN and Skype and don't know what carrier and tariff to use. I have seen an offer in O2 website 8100 cost about 16 a month and free handset, O2 - Phone details, but that is for business, what is the difference? Can I use that? If not, what is the best deal?

Can't help you much on buying, but don't plan on SKYPE being very good, unless you can get a 3G version (8707v). Even then, I doubt that you will like the result and call quality. In particular, if you are going to be using it for business, I would not go that way.

Welcome to the BBForums!

You need to purchase according to who will have the best coverage where you live, work and play. That, added in with the cost, are the best factors to weigh in your decision.

The 8100 is a great device, very popular. You will have to get a "BlackBerry Data Plan" from whichever carrier you go with.

Thanks for reply. I think if the price is not ideal I might wait until the 8130 comes out. I think it would be good to have GPS and 3G, if I remembered...
