Default Blackberry Storm 2 not on contract... (UK)

Please Login to Remove!

hi guys,

Basically my plan is to buy an unlocked Storm 2 from ebay and then try and use it with Orange who, according to their in-store sales person, will offer my 'blackberry services (email)' and internet browsing for a certain price per month on pay as you go. The in-store person said that they will configure the phone for me...

Now this phone is an unlocked Vodafone Storm 2 9520.

I have a few questions...

1. Is it possible to configure an unlocked phone for blackberry services + internet even though its all built for Vodafone?

2. If orange refuse to put me on their blackebrry service, is there a way to use a UK pay as you go sim card (from any operator) with the blackberry service for a cost...

Thanks very much,

Hazzy

1. Yes.
2. No. Orange is the only operator that offers BlackBerry service PAYG.
