Hi there, my mum told me tonight that everyone at work is getting upgraded to iPhones and since she personally owns a BlackBerry she said she'll give it to me. What I want to know is, I'm with Orcon and I dont want to pay for BlackBerry Service, I only want to text, call and browse the web. Can I get that blocked on the phone or through Orcon? Also to get BB Apps like Facebook, do I need to pay for BBS or can I just install the app? Cheers in advance, Sam.

You have to pay for BlackBerry service if you want to do anything with mobile data. Everything will go through the BlackBerry servers.

Personal opinion of course, but you'll get a better Mobile Internet experience using a Tincan and string than you will using a Blackberry.




I hate you.
