Please help - I want a blackberry Bold 9000 on O2. Will this work?
 
Hi,

I'm looking to buy an unlocked Blackberry Bold 9000 from play.com and to use an O2 simplicity tariff with a Blackberry Unlimited bolt-on. I did post the links but I'm not allowed as I am a new member.

Will this be ok? Are there any cheaper ways of doing this? Will I be able to use all the blackberry features as this phone is unlocked and not bought on O2? Excuse my ignorance, I've never owned a Blackberry.

Thank you

From what I've read here on the forum, the "blackberry bolt on" is functionally what many of us would call a blackberry data plan. Someone will correct me if I'm being inaccurate. But the point is you want to be sure you are buying blackberry data service and not generic mobile data service.

Everything should work masterfully.

You are accurate.

Thanks. I've decided to go for a 9700 instead from Phones4U sim free. I presume my plan will still work with this phone?

Yes it will.

It is the Blackberry Unlimited UK Bolt-on,and is free with Simplicity tariffs of 20+.
(Which i believe is stated as being 19.something currently)
On the lower price plans its 9.something a month, which works out more expensive than being on 20 tariff with it for free.

Thanks. Are you sure that is the case regarding the tariffs though? I can only see the unlimited web bolt on, which I don't believe is the same.

NEW QUESTION! I'd create a different thread but I don't know how to. I can either get a refurbished Bold 9000 for 245 with a 12 month warranty and it is described as grade A condition and has an unregistered BIS PIN. I trust the website. Or I can get a 9700 for 350, brand new with 24month warranty. Any advice?

Device is up to you.

Online, you go to simplicity.
you pick your tariff.
on the next page it has the extras.
there is a box with the blackberry bolt-ons in it. pick the one you want.
continue.

I would recommend the 9700. It's worth the extra money.
