im so sorry if this is posted in the wrong place but ive literally just signed up!

so, i got a blackberry for christmas, and i got an o2 sim that unlimited texts and internet for 15 a month pay as you go.

Moved thread to General BB forum.

You need to get a BlackBerry data plan, not just a plain old data plan. Call O2 and ask them to add a BlackBerry data plan.

See and

You will not be able to use blackberry/RIM data apps, but if you have general (not blackberry) data service, you may be able to use a third-party browser, such as opera mini.

No, O2 do not support PAYG blackberry data. only Orange UK do.
O2 do give you blackberry data on a SIM Only contract however.
Closest you'll get to payg and data.
