You're getting mixed reviews... mainly because you there's more information needed than you're providing.

 

IF you can get the BlackBerry Data Plan (sometimes called "bolt-on) with your Orange PAYGO plan, yes, you will have BBMessenger.

 

IF you cannot, or do not, subscribe to this specific data plan (a generic data plan won't do), then no, you won't have BBMessenger, or RIM pushed email, etc.

Thankyou for your response, so orange actually has a special "data plan/bolt on" for the bbm service? this is what i was confused about, i know 02 have one, just wasn't sure if orange did also.

Orange certainly does offer BlackBerry data service.

 

I just don't know for certain IF they offer it for PAYGO plans, not all service providers do so on PAYGO.

But a phone call or search of the Orange website probably would answer that question.

thank you, i have recently found out via the orange website that you purchase a £5 internet and email bundle, so would this mean, if i purchased this bundle i would get access to the "blackberry messaging service" .

ONLY if that package include BlackBerry data.

You will need to ask Orange that question.
