Hi there thinking of buying a blackberry and was wondering whether I would be able to use pin and email services on my contract. I broke my old phone and can't cancel the contract.

It's with virign and I get 1GB of 'mobile web'. I'm not sure if that will count for the email and pin. Also if it doesn't, does anyone know any cheap blackberry sim only deals.

Thanks

It doesn't.
You'll need a blackberry add-on, which virgin may add to your existing contract. It runs around 5 per month.

O2 Simplicity for Blackberry.

You need a data plan specifically for BlackBerry.

No, its not blackberry data.
Tesco don't support blackberries at this time.

Carriers that say unlimited data generally mean regular cell service data not blackberry data. You will need a BB data plan in most cases for any email.
