Can I use Bell Mobility Pay As You Go with any of the blackberry models?

I am Canada. I currently have a TREO smartphone and I get a month top-up of pay as you go minutes from Bell mobility. This works beautifully for me and I won't even tell you how the low the cost is -- but of course, I don't have data or PIN. I would like a BB just to be able to PIN/BBM my husband and friends.


Does anyone know if this is an option?


Which BB would I go with?

In order to BBM someone, you first have to have BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) on your account. You can still get this with PAYG but you have to have a phone that has been programmed for PAYG. Put another way, just because someone has a BlackBerry Model 'X' phone on PAYG with Bell, doesn't mean that any Model 'X' will work.

I hope that helps you. Smiley Happy
