Can I Use An Ordinary Vodafone Pay As You Go Sim Card On A Second Hand Vodafone Blackberry?

April 21, 2009

I have been given a blackberry without a sim card. Would I be able to use a normal vodafone pay as you go sim card (like you’d get in a mobile phone) to access web and emails on the blackberry, or do I have to buy a special sim card?

    you can use the sim card for voice calls, however you will not be able to access ANY data (including Live!, MMS, or any form of WAP browsing) from the device as blackberrys require a special APN (internet access point) and you cannot have the blackberry APN on PAYT…

    Yep, any Vodafone SIM card should work with any Vodafone handset, however the data charges on pay as you go will be pretty bad, and certain services like Push Email might not work.

    A payg simcard will work on a blackberry just for calls and texts, however the web and email wont work as you need a contract also you need to subcribe to a blackberry connect account which will cost between £12-£15 pm on top of your monthly tariff. I bought a cheap blackberry for 45 quid i got it unlocked put in a vodafone contract simcard and i phoned Vodafone for the settings for my blackberry, because the blackberry was originally on another network, it wasnt a handset that vodafone supported.

Got something to say?
