    Pay as you go

    Advertisement



    I have a spare 7100 that I now have a pay as you go SIM card in, and as a phone it works fine.

    Is there any way I can get email without having a pay monthly contract with a provider?

    Hi, unfortunately its not possible to access data on the BB on PAYG. A friend of mine tried it and he had to get the data plan.

    R3nb72 is right on the money. I tried many yrs. ago with my other cellphones though T-Mobile. It was not possible 4 yrs. ago & sorry 2 say it's still not possible as of 2day @ all.

    yeah we also tried at another company of mine as a solution for people who normally didn't use BB's but wanted to on extended business trips for periods of time
    i looked at every provider at the time and wasn't able to find any
    don't know if that has changed

    Unfortunately it is not possible. BlackBerry's operate through RIM's secure servers on the backend and with a specific BlackBerry Data Plan you're BlackBerry will do little more than Voice/SMS. Next to email the BlackBerry is built on security hence it's wide use in Military, GOV, Corp etc. There in no workaround.

    LOL... that is of course assuming the data network is up and running from the SK. Also not secure or useful from a business angle.

    I would not wish an SK on my worst emeny.

    SMS is a GSM protocol - you should have it as long as the SIM is from one of the main carriers (Voda, TMo and O2).

    Re: Pay as you go

    I bought a Vodafone 7100v and put a PAYG sim in it. It died a week later (nothing to do with sim) but before that, I went into a Vodafone shop in York and asked about all the nice facilities that didn't seem to work.

    They told me the same as all the other replies: You can't do that!

    He did offer to sell me a contract (how nice of him) but warned me that it was expensive to have your e-mail following you around. It is also expensive to look at web pages. I decided to decline his offer (-:

    As for SMS, it worked fine for me with my Vodafone SIM card.
