Hello! Me again! Haha Smiley Happy


My parents have decided to switch the whole family over to Tesco mobile. Anyone heard of it? Anyway, I used to be on O2 and had a blackberry bolt on for my emails and internet. If I switch over to Tesco will I still receive emails? My blackberry is really important to me to receive emails and I cant afford to get a new phone. I have no other way of checking my emails while I'm out of the house.

Yes, you will likely need to setup your email accounts on the Tesco BIS account all over again.

Make sure your parents let Tesco know what your number/account has a BlackBerry and will need the BlackBerry BIS data plan.

Re: Help?

Thanks for replying. I've decided to save up for a new phone. Spoke to Tesco a few minutes ago and they said I would have to take out another contract for the blackberry which isnt fair to my parents.


Thanks again for replying!
