O2 to offer BlackBerry on PAYG

o2O2 today announces that Research In Motion’s BlackBerry® has launched on Pay & Go from O2 and a whole new audience can now send each other messages on BlackBerry® Messenger (BBMTM), use RIM’s powerful multitasking software and keep up to date with their email and favourite social networks on the go.

With five BlackBerry® smartphones available to choose from, there’s one to suit every pocket, case or bag. The range includes the BlackBerry® PearlTM 3G – the smallest BlackBerry smartphone ever, available in black or purple, exclusively on O2 – at £249.99, the BlackBerry® CurveTM 8520 at £149.99 or the hugely popular BlackBerry® BoldT 9700 at £349.99. A huge range of accessories are also available in store and on including cases designed by Ed Hardy and Lulu Guinness.

Once they’ve chosen their phone, O2’s Pay & Go tariff for BlackBerry smartphones offers customers inclusive BBMTM and 500MB data access when they top up with a minimum of £15 per month. Customers also get 500 texts per month when they top up between £15 and £29 per month or unlimited texts when they top up £30 or more each month.

“O2’s new Pay & Go tariffs for BlackBerry smartphones will bring all the benefits of BlackBerry to even more of our customers,” said Jonathan Earle, Head of Consumer Marketing for Telefónica O2 UK. “With BBMTM being used more and more across the world, now anyone can share their PIN and get chatting.”

O2 has also revamped its Pay Monthly tariffs for BlackBerry smartphones, offering 500 minutes, unlimited text, Wi-Fi and 500MB data on 24 month contracts for £25 a month. Customers paying £35 a month can get 1000 minutes and 750MB data on a 24 month contract.

It’s about time O2 joined the BlackBerry PAYG party. I dread to think how much revenue they have lost to T-Mobile and Orange.
