    hi all, just came across this this site and i was hoping you could all help with a few questions i have before i purchase my blackberry.
    ok here goes ..

    1. I want to go with o2 in the uk as my provider, they are providing me with blackberry unlimited for 15 a month because i dont want a voice plan. Does this mean i can use the blackberry messenger in this plan without paying extra?

    2. My friend in canada is getting a blackberry and this is the sole reason for me getting one and text messaging is far too expensive. Is it possible to use the blackberry instand messenger to talk to her?

    thanks for reading and any replies will be appreciated

    As long as its a BB internet plan, and not just a BB email plan, you will be able to use BBMessenger

    You can use BBMessenger across the world, i have BBMessenger buddies form australia, canada, USA, and UK!!

    Welcome 2 The Crack Zone

    15 doesn't sound like a lot, so double check to ensure it's a BB internet plan and not just for email.

    If this is the plan you have:
    BlackBerry from O2 - O2 Unlimited BlackBerry tariff for consumers
    Then you're good to go.

    From what I read, I believe you'll be okay.

    * send and receive as many emails as you like
    * surf the full Internet with the BlackBerry browser - supported on all RIM devices and some non RIM manufactured (BlackBerry Connect) devices
    * get unlimited use of Yahoo! Messenger instant messaging
    * use O2 Active (WAP) browsing to access games, music, news, sport, entertainment and more.

    Don't take my word for it, I'm not familiar with O2. Double check with them to be certain.

    Not reading all posts but...

    I think the 15 O2 want for BB is on top of your voice tariff. +you won't get the BB free on that. I recommend what T-Mobile are doing on the 8110 (you might get a 20 in the Carphone Warehouse). With a data plan and BB thing (as long as there's something advertised as BlackBerry in there) you can use BBM free to talk to your friend in Canadia.

    If you need anything else email me (address below) and I'll try to help. I'll be in the O2 store soon anyways so I can ask about their stuffage. Or if you want a real conversation I can PM or email you my phone number (email me and ask if this is what you want)
