Orange adds PAYG BlackBerry

The choice for cheapskates?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Mobile email fans bereft of cash can now get their BlackBerry kicks without a monthly service contract, thanks to Orange.

The service provider has announced plans to launch the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 on Pay-As-You-Go.

Although the phone will initially cost you £145 ($206/€161), you’ll then have control over how much surfing, calling, emailing and texting costs you because you won’t be tied to a monthly commitment.

Orange’s decision is said to have followed “growing demand for a BlackBerry smartphone with PAYG service”. Unfortunately, RIM’s latest BlackBerry – the Storm – won’t be available, but there’s always a chance it’ll be added to the list later. Much like O2 did with the iPhone 3G.

The BlackBerry 8120 will be available on Orange PAYG from early next month. ®
