Exclamation BlackBerry plans in Australia

Please Login to Remove!

Okay so im thinking about buying a BlackBerry in Doha, Qatar outright and then taking it back to Australia where I reside.
What im wondering is are there any plans which allow me to use BlackBerry service (data, email and ESPECIALLY BBM)
My main reason for purchasing a BB is that every single on of my friends have one and i have friends who now live in many countires and it seems like the perfect solution to keeping in touch so BlackBerry Messenger is a must.
Im a noob on the BB scene so Im wondering does BBM come automatically with a BB or does it need to be activated and paid for? How does this work?
Also if someone could give me some links to some sites of BB plans on Australian network carriers it would be GREATLY appreciated

Thanks a lot in advance

Yes. I believe all carriers in Oz offer BlackBerry service, and it will be more economical to purchase it there rather than Qatar. However, buying it in Qatar will mean it is unlocked unless it is Vodafone branded, and will allow you to use it with any provider in any country. I recommend checking City Centre mall first, as I have gotten very good deals on mobiles in that mall. The other good places are the Carrefour department store in Villagio mall and the phone souk.

As far as BBM is concerned, you will need a BlackBerry data plan from the provider of your choice to use it.

Here is some information for you:
