    Blackberry...

    I'm on a non blackberry contract at the moment, I have internet on my contract
    If I were to get one cause I use that internet for the blackberry messenger and all that, or would I need blackberry services.

    If I need the blackberry services would I be able to swap the internet for the blackberry services?

    Cheers

    With Orange
    300 Mins,
    Unlimited Texts
    500MB Internet
    27.50 a month
    With the HTC Desire HD,

    Thinking of selling though as I miss a keypad....

    You have to get the blackberry services should be about £5 a month extra i believe

    sorry for lack of quoting, can't get it to work on my phone,

    The blackberry services,
    Would that include bbm, internet and email or have i got this completely wrong?

    Basically because bb phones access internet differently to other phones, your service provider must include bb. So you need bb service for internet, bbm, bb apps etc etc.

    Hope this helped.

    Kay so what does Blackberry Services allow?

    Email, BBM and Internet Access?

    Or just email and BBM?

    I can confirm you can swap your normal internet tariff for the blackberry internet tariff without the extra £5 charge, my partner did this few months back a week after she got the contract.

    You can use the browser and few other apps(not app world) on the blackberry if you have wifi set up but not emails or bbm. Just change the browser settings to 'hotspot'.

    Orange are quite strict, I put my O2 sim in and that allowed me to use the browser but not bbm without blackberry internet but orange don't allow this at all without blackberry internet. It's got something to do with the service books.
