But yeah, I'll only be there for about 6 months, and I assume I can't sign up for a BBData plan for that amount of time? (I'd have to get a year, or like the US a 2 year minimum plan)...
Hmm, and I need a BBData service to use BBMessenger, don't I?
No, I say that because you can't sign contracts there without being able to prove residence, which you won't be able to do as a student in a rental property or dormitory.
Yes, you need a BB data plan if you want to use BB Messenger.

O2 might let you do Pay as You Go.
I agree with you, but the best thing to do is have a second unlocked phone for the local SIM.
Also, O2 does not offer prepaid BB service unfortunately.
