    I have PAUG with ee orange on my blackberry curve.
    I no longer use messenger and do not want to pay the 5.00 per month it's utilisation costs.
    I still want to get e mails and occasionally browse the internet.
    Regularly get messages from orange to say you have 5gb of i/data this month and u have used 0 data.
    I know the 5.00per month goes to blackberry and helps them support the business.!!!
    It is also my experience on a monthly basis that if the account has less than 5.00p in it they disconnect BBM which takes e mail as well.
    Is the answer just to get a different hand set/mobile.??? thanks..

    BlackBerry gets only a small part of the 5.00per month. Maybe 1 or 2 at the most. And yes, if you disconnect BIS, you will lose email as well as BBM.

    you are paying not for BBM, but for BIS - Blackberry Internet Service, which consists of Email services, Internet browsings and BBM.
    if BIS is switched off - you will not receive email and will have very limited browsing experience.

    if you want to get rid of those 5 pounds - switch to BB10 device (or iphone/android/windows).

    if you like Hardware keyboard - I would recommend Blackberry Passport or Classic. If you have limited budget, please check for Q10/Q5 on ebay.
    blackberry q5 | eBay
    you can get quite cheap, even unused device. If locked - have in mind you can UNLOCK Q5/Q10 for about 15 pounds via ebay message.
