Question Blackberry 8520 on pay as you go help please? dont know if this is in the right plac

Please Login to Remove!

For christmas I am going to be getting a Blackberry 8520 for christmas. I chose this over the 8900 because for the features, the price difference is like 100 and all the 8900 has extra is the screen resolution and camera. And Id prefer the trackpad.



I would like to use the phone mainly for: Texting, facebook and windows live messenger so I can talk to my friends while im at school etc. Ive been having problems working out the whole mobile internet things but ive got this up to now:



Theres a pay as you go on orange, but I dont know if you get internet on it



Or there is an o2 pay as you go sim card where if you top up 15 a month you get 500 texts and unlimited internet.


Can anyone help me with this or reccomend me a better deal? Id like to spend 15 a month but I may be able to go up to 20 (pay as you go only)



Thanks guys

The only pay-as-you-go plan offered with BlackBerry data is on Orange UK. Facebook and Windows Live Messenger both use BlackBerry data, so if you want to use them at all you need the BlackBerry Data Plan. And on a pay-as-you-go basis, that's Orange only.

O2's pay as you go, top up $15 for internet does NOT apply to Blackberrys.

As Rambo said, the only PAYG Blackberry data plan is offered by Orange.
