Free Accessory pack
This great value deal comes with a free accessory pack with 3 rubberised wraps to protect your Blackberry plus a spare set of headphones.

With 12 months of unlimited Internet & Email (subject to a fair use policy of 1GB of data a month)

Also, http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/482805/blackberry-8110-gps-pink-clearance-/ if still available, if anyone wants to compare. Think that deal was orange, whereas this new one is tmobile - guess both are locked to networks, though they're amalgamating, for what it's worth. Just looked, and seems to be there, though in pink and clearance at £79.95, £10 top-up.

£40 accessory pack, on Currys deal, whilst stock lasts. Quidco available on both I think.

How is 1gb unlimited? That's limited to 1gb!
#4
Can this be unlocked?
#5
Its On T-Mobile( not stated in op) not sure if locked.
#6
PC World have this offer in-store as well.

£99.99 and not pink!

Blackberries are easily unlocked. Can be done online but might cost you about £12.

Downside of the 8110 is that it doesn't have WiFi.

On GPRS, 1GB is effectively Unlimited!

Hi. Does anybody know if I could use mobile phones like this one in order to connect to the internet with my laptop? … use it as modem somehow? I do not mind the speed as long as it can provide continuous and stable connection.
#11
That's a great deal, thanks!! :D
#12
Great deal. Thanx.

Even on a 56k modem 1gb/month is still very limited, so u can't say 1gb/month on GPRS is effectively unlimited because the fair use policy is just a con :x

It amazes me how it is still legal to use the term "unlimited" for something that is definition limited. :x

no its not, its 1GB

Fair use means they won't charge if you go over the 1gb a bit, but if you are ending up with 10gb. Its their way of saying don't take the ****.
#19
Sorry for the silly question but I am on a 30pounds a month tariff with O2 (with cashbacks). Is there any way I could get a phone like this and use it on my tariff? Would I have to pay extra for web/email traffic?
#20
Is there an app you can put on this phone so you can keep an eye on usage, anyone please:thumbsup:
#21
Horrible, horrible phone but good deal if you want a horrible phone so voted hot.

I used to work with someone who did this. It was fiddly to initially setup as the instructions were poor. But once setup it was about the same in terms of reliability and speed. It will never compare to a wifi connection and is slower than the USB Sticks but I work in IT and worked for about a month on a mobile data tariff via my phone and although it wasnt ideal, my boss didnt clock I wasnt in the office and all the work got done. Only slower.

Also they 1gb limit will get used up quickly. My experience with Orange was that they didnt really bother with enforcing the limit and I guess they just say that so people doing Gigs of tranfer a month can be got rid of.

You can connect this Blackberry 8110 Pearl to laptops but will be charged for it as this uses a different data gateway via mobile phone network hence will be charged for. Better to check with T-Mobile PAYG network on data charges using Blackberry 8110 Pearl as a modem. Think of the handset as a transmitter & reciever hence external factors like environment can affect the signal hence the closer you are to a mobile mast the better.

Here are the BlackBerry Pearl 8110 handset specifications. If only this was the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 with WiFi.

Just waiting if BlackBerry will release a Pearl with 3G.

You will probably need to increase you tariff plan to £35 p/mth before receiving a FOC Unlimited Bolt On which you can select FOC O2 Unlimited Blackberry Bolt On (UK usage only) which is worth £10 to add on normally on a voice tariff plan but you gain "Push Email" instantly plus unlimited data download (does not include connecting to laptop) through this add on.

Data download via Blackberry Bolt On's is compressed compare to O2 Web Bolt On's (worth £7.50) hence the monthly allowance is more than enough to use but this is also dependant on what you download data for. Although, it is called O2 Unlimited Blackberry Bolt On but most network say Unlimited as it is Unlimited but keep an eye what you use data for as there is a flexibility on what you download but if you go crazy like there's no end to constant downloading 24/7/365 then you will certainly received a warning from O2. O2 network is allowing the customer to be flexible on what you download on a monthly basis but be fair to other O2 customers that are using the same network. Again, it is why O2 call it, Fair Usage Policy applies.

Remember that this is also dependant on what type of voice tariff you have as if you have a legacy tariff meaning a very out of date tariff not sold anymore, you will have to move onto the newer tariffs to allow the extra Bolt Ons to be compatible with the newer tariffs.

Better to speak direct to O2 Direct or speak to the retailer where you bought your contract as judging by what you said you had cashback. O2 Direct do not offer cashback deals.

veedubjai, do you know what the difference is between BB and web bolt ons? I understand that BB uses WAP APN, but how restricted is this?
#32
Thanks veedubjai. This is useful to know whether I'll go ahead with this phone or not.

The 'unlimited' tariff for Blackberry uses a Blackberry specific APN (GPRS access point). When you configure an alternative browser or an app to use O2's GPRS APN (mobile.o2.co.uk) this access isn't included in the 'unlimited' tariff.

Therefore access via Blackberry APN is 'unlimited', O2 GPRS APN is not.

BlackBerry Unlimited
Fair usage policy applies (200Mb a month). Tariff excludes O2 Active (WAP) browsing, using your device as a modem and web browsing on BlackBerry Connect™ devices.

http://www.o2.co.uk/termsandconditions/tariffsandboltons#

Modem usage is permitted but is charged at an additional £0.98/MB.
[*]The BlackBerry Internet Solution from O2 Unlimited tariff allows you to send and receive as many emails as you like, surf the web using the BlackBerry browser and via O2 Active WAP browsing, get unlimited use of Yahoo!

All usage must be for your private, personal and non-commercial purposes. You may not use your SIM Card:[LIST]
[*]to allow the continuous streaming of any audio / video content, enable Voice over Internet (Voip), P2P or file sharing; or

note: i don't think the 8120 trumps the 8110 exactly, I think the 8110 has GPS and the 8120 does not? Wifi may be exactly what you want yourself of course, I'm just pointing that out.

Ordered this phone and I'm not that keen on it.

Thought the buttons were ridiculously small to use (especially when you need to press shift + another key). The keyboard is awkard, even though it's the same qwerty layout as a keyboard, you don't have matchbox size keyboards! The alt keys on top of the keyboard letters on such small buttons add to the confusion.

The £40 extras are not worth £40. 3 plastic covers and some headphones which should have come with the phone anyway!

25p per minute calls to landlines and mobiles is a tad dear too I reckon. The internet/email addon is a fab bonus, but don't know if there's a required spend to get this either (like £10 per month), as I've not looked into it as I don't want to activate the sim since it's going back.

I like the rollerball mouse but I'd prefer it if it were 'tighter' so you don't have to use 2 big thumb 'sweeps' to navigate.

I'm going for a proper qwerty keyboard instead...just my personal choice. It's what I fancied in the first place.

Thought I'd post my feedback and wondered what others thought of it.
Thanks for the heads up op, as at least i got to try it out first.
