O2 announces five BlackBerry smartphones on PAYG

O2 announces five BlackBerry smartphones on PAYG

A selection of five different smartphones from the existing BlackBerry range will be offered to consumers on a pay as you go deal by network provider O2.

The firm is offering the BlackBerry Pearl 3G, Curve 8520, Bold 9700 and two other as yet unannounced smartphones as part of the promotion.

The Pearl 3G will run you £250 as a one-off payment if you want to pick it up from O2, whilst the Bold 9700 will be even costlier at £350. The Curve 8520 is sensibly priced at the affordable niche of £150, owing to its more basic components and capabilities.

O2 will allow its pay as you go customers the chance to use the BlackBerry Messenger service free of charge as long as you top up with £15 worth of credit in a given month.

Users can also receive a bundle of 500 texts per month for topping up between £15 and £29 per month, and unlimited texts for topping up £30 or more on a monthly basis.

O2 has not only added pay as you go options to its BlackBerry deals, but has also re-jigged its pay monthly contracts for Research in Motion's popular messaging smartphones.

Anyone on a 24-month contract will receive 500 minutes talk-time, unlimited texts, Wi-Fi and 500Mb of data for £25 per month. For £35 per month, customers can get 1000 minutes and 750Mb of data.
