    O2 still aren't doing it, vodafone not sure, t-mobile have died it down it seems. I work next door to them and they said it's not been worth doing so I guess they may phase it out :s orange however seem to be very much advertising. Doing the 8520 pay and go for 149 to! seems best bet for pay and go but look at o2 sim only plans if you a BB already. I'm on the o2 20 sim only plan

    Orange is the only one which offers full Blackberry Internet Service on pay as you go, for 5/month and that covers internet, emails and messenger

    Orange is the only one and to be honest do a fanstastic offer on it, i rekon you should look at sim only and buy a handset on payg, then get it unlocked and get the best simo deal with a blackberry add on for good vaule for money.

    how many minutes on orange pay as you go for 10 pounds?

    my girlfriend is using 3 mobile and the topup is once in 3 months and 3 to 3 calls and texts are free. but all other calls are 20pence a minute. oh and she gets 150mb for web browsing and it is free to use iskoot(skype client over phone line). she is using nokia n70.
    200, i never ring anyway tho, suppose i should since i have the free minutes!

    Your best bet would be getting it on Orange PAYG (Curve 8520 - 149 + 20 on top for credit). You can pay 5 a month for BIS PAYG and this includes a month worth of useage on BBM, Emails and Internet. If you top up by 20 you also get 600 texts and they give you a quid for registering your SIM.

    My cousin got this deal last week on her Blackberry and seems very satisfied with it.

    I've been looking for a PAYG deal my 8310, but because I can't get a decent Orange or 02 signal where I live I'm rather limited. The cheapest sim PAYG deal I can find for a Blackberry data service is 20, yet considering the likes of Virgin are offering the 8520 (an upgrade to my current phone) for free, with the data service and all the trimmings, for 20 a month, it seems common sense to buy a whole new contract.

    Yes it does.

    I have my unlocked 9500 working perfectly with Orange PAYG BIS.

    I am currently living in United Arab Emirates and I have a blackberry 9790. I am using the Etisalat Social Package which is AED 49 monthly.

    In a few months I will be living in UK and I don't know how to get BIS there. Can anyone tell me which company offers the best and cheapest BIS? Is there any social packages similar to the one I'm using in Etisalat UAE?

    On pay as you go;

    Giffgaff - get a 10 goodybag and you can include a 3 BIS add on and you only pay 13 if you're ordering through the internet so no need to top up 15 vouchers.
    o2 are doing BIS services for 5 on pay as you go.
    I think vodafone are doing BIS services for 10 on pay as you go.

    Not entirely sure about the other networks as I've never used them or just don't have any information on their BIS packages while writing this post out.

    I quite agree. Been with Virgin/BB for 4 years and no problem. Very good carrier i.e. TMobile and Orange.
