Question Blackberry 7100V,A couple of questions. . .

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone and especially to the Forum moderators,i have 2 quick questions,firstly,i am about to purchase a Blackberry 7100V on Vodafone UK,i am an existing Vodafone UK customer and My simcard is data enabled including GPRS usage.Plus my monthly tariff includes a GPRS usage bundle/SMS bundle,Do i need to add anything to my existing tariff to enable My Blackberry 7100V in order to surf the web and access My AOL e-mails?I noticed that the Blackberry 7100V has an option already added for accessing Vodafone Live!Also,AOL gave Me a link to access My e-mails via the newer generation of mobile/smartphones,is that all i need?I would like to conclude that i am a private user not on any corporate plan.Thankyou in advance!

Yes, you will need to add the BlackBerry Data Plan package to your existing account. It will not work with the GPRS usage bundle you already have.

You will need to set up a BlackBerry Web Client e-mail account for the BB (instructions are either with your BB or on the carrier web site). That will allow you to "push" the e-mails to your BB instead of having to go and try and get them when you want them.

But you must have the BB Data Plan.

I believe the 7100v is free, at least it was still free yesterday in side Vodafone retail locations. Get the anytime 400 plan, it allows you to get the phone for free.

Also add the 6 pound SMS tariff.. if you can.

And... try and get a bluetooth headset for either half price or free. I think this month they will throw is a sony bluetooth headset.

If you are in a mall location, see if you can bring in a catalog from O2 (who is cheaper by the way) and see is they will price match anything... dont hold your breath.
