Default Some basic blackberry questions

Please Login to Remove!


I need to get a blackberry in the UK for my work, the guys in my local phone store didn't know a great deal about them so I thought I'd ask here.

Basically I'm looking for a blackberry 8300 on contract. Alot of calls would be international.

So I'm wondering where would be best to get a contract from, since alot of calls would be international would an international package be good ( I'm just considering the fact that you can get those services where you dial a number first and get international calls for a few cents/pence a minute?

For email do you need a good internet package so It doesn't end up costing too much per month to be checking emails?

Can you get "blackberry service" in the Uk?

Any help appreciated.

Best Regards

About all I can answer is the one on the Internet package. For Internet and email, you need a BB dataplan. Carriers who offer BBs also offer a BB dataplan of some sort. US carriers offer unlimted BB dataplans. Not sure what is offered by the UK carriers however.
