You will need a Blackberry Bolt-On which is only available on contract and Simplicity SIM Only plans.

O2 do not offer Blackberry services on PAYG.

You would not be able to use any Blackberry services, and most applications (FB, App World, Yahoo, Google, etc)

You would be able to browse via a 3rd party browser (Opera) via wi-fi, and use the phone for calls and SMS's.
