Question Hopefully New Newbie to Blackberry in UK

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

Hopefully gonna become a new BB user soon, but have a few questions I hope you can answer.

Only require a BB for Email Only, no voice. Already on Orange UK payg

Looking at getting an unlocked or Orange 8700 off ebay as my device, my question is if a put an orange sim into it which has already a standard data plan on it, will i be able to use the device?

Also have a Personal Exchange account with, who offer BB enterprise options for $9.95 pm, is this enough to get BB push email working on the 8700 or do I need the BB 17.00 pay monthly email only plan that orange offer?

If this is the case i might get the 8800 for 149.99

Hope you can help ppl
