A week ago we had a look at the BlackBerry smartphones available on each of the top 5 UK networks. This list consisted of devices available on contract. With Pay and Go very popular in the UK, it was only right to roundup a list of all BlackBerry devices available for users who prefer Pay and Go.

You may want to bookmark this post as it will be updated accordingly, when new devices get added. Namely, the BlackBerry 7 devices we are all eagerly waiting for.

Hang on so on o2 pay as you go the new Torch 9860 is £110 cheaper than the older Torch 9800 but on o2 contract the 9800 is up to £150 cheaper, on identical contracts??

Think that just shows how messed up phone pricing is in the UK!

am I missing something here or is the Torch 9860 really cheap on o2 pay as you go??

Ebay have them for £375
Carphonewarehouse £449!
O2 - £349???

I was very surprised when I saw the price tag too. It quite crazy. Made me think about getting it instead of the Bold 9900 as it would be cheaper on the pocket but I really want the Bold 9900
