Default Newbie: Pay as you go on Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

Am wondering if there's any way that i can get a blackberry device to be pay as you go? i need to buy 30 devices for my clients and i don't want to have thirty contracts - i'd rather they look after there own credit etc... (for obvious reasons).

Any input would be useful - tnx

I don't think it's possible.

IN our offices, the company provides the phone and service at first setup. Basically they hand you the phone ready to go. After that the bill is sent to your office mail account, you pay yourself however (business credit card, cash, check, etc) and expense back to the company monthly. Give that a try.

It is not possible for BB to be on pay as you go and still receive emails, you will only have PDA functionality and Voice

Here in Canada on the Rogers Wireless Network it is impossible to have the Blackberry used on a pay go basis. For voice & sms it is possible but for email and pinning you need to have a Blackberry data pack and either use a data only price plan, combined voice & data price plan or add a Blackberry data pack to your existing voice plan.
