    It's referred to as a Blackberry Data Plan... this allows your Blackberry to be registered with a cell phone provider on their Blackberry Internet Server (BIS) or a Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES, which is usually for work email)... here is the Blackberry 101 lesson on the subject: blackberry-101-lecture-2-bes-and-bis-whats-difference

    hi there, if your on vodafone in the uk, then the BIS plan isnt available on PAYG, what youd need is one of the sim only plans with BIS added on, if ur in the uk let me know an i`l put all the prices on ere for ya, as i work for vf, so sure can get ya up an runnin
