No.
You need to have a BLACKBERRY data plan (in the case of t-mobile the Blackberry Email Booster) on your account.

T-mobile do not offer pay as you go blackberry data plans.
only with contract or solo (sim only plans)
Orange are the only UK network to offer blackberry data plans with payg.
I have no idea how much it costs.

You would need to get your BB unlocked, go to an orange store and enquire there.
