Free data on Orange UK PAYG this summer - perfect for BlackBerry customers
More great Pay-As-You-Go news coming out of the UK - which will be perfect for BlackBerry customers that are on the Orange network. As you'll see in the above (comical) video, Orange are having a summer promotion and when customers top up their phones by £10 they will get 1GB of free data.
Although 'the other' Kevin doesn't mention it in the video - customers will also get 400 free text messages which sounds like a bargain to me. How many BlackBerry 10 users are PAYG customers is anybody's guess but I'm pretty sure there will be some out there. There will be a few million legacy BlackBerry Orange users I would expect so this one may be a real treat for them.
We all know that the networks try to make contract deals as attractive as possible but for those folk that can't get a contract - maybe down to credit history - Pay-As-You-Go is really the only alternative.
It's also worth mentioning that if you have got a BlackBerry 10 device on Orange you will need to upgrade to an EE contract to take advantage of 4G. Although Orange and T-Mobile are owned by EE they are remaining as 3G services only.
