Default UK Newbie...will it go PAYG?

Please Login to Remove!

Morning folks.

I was always curious about these Blackberries so borrowed an old one for a
while (locked to O2), got it to work as a normal phone with a PAYG o2
sim, synch calendar etc. but I can't get the full email funcionality working.

I called o2 and they told me that I would need to go on contract but I
keep unearthening contrary info via google. Any thoughts? Any
experience of getting it going on PAYG?

Presently it says "Data connection refused".

Not possible to use pay as you go services for BlackBerry data.
You need an actual BlackBerry Data Plan. o2 is correct.
