hi there, unfortunately the blackberry services, i.e internet, email and messaging arent available on the vodafone network through a PAYT variant, as you would need to pay £5.00 per month for the services plus web access, but vf do not offer this on PAYT, now what most people in your situation tend to do is go for one of the sim only plans, which start from as little as £10 a month, then add unlimited internet (£7.50) and the blackberry internet soloution (otherwise known as BIS £5.00). the best part of the sim only deals, is the fact that you are only ever held in for 30 days, so should you change your mind, or just decide PAYT was more for you, then moving back is easy and no long contracts to worry about paying, that said though, sim only plans offer better rates than PAYT, even with the freedom packs, so id say its definitley worth a look, jus check out the link below
just dont forget to add £12.50 per month on for unlimited web and blackberry services
hope this helps

Firstly, a very warm welcome to the eForum, it's always great to see new faces on here
This does sound like a tricky situation as I'm sure you're eager to use a Blackberry, I'm positive I can suggest a solution for you
Firstly, thanks very much to daveastra and Ann S, they've covered almost everything I was going to say . There is one thing I can add though.
Do you have any friends or relatives here in the UK who would be able to pass a credit check? If so then you'd be able to use them as a guarantor if they're willing. Basically this would mean that the account is effectively in their name however you could have full access to it. It's definitely worth a thought .
Let me know how you get on.

Many thanks for getting back to us on this one. The easiest way to set up your Blackberry handset with your Gmail account is to log on to and register on the Vodafone Blackberry site.
Once you have entered the device Pin and IMEI (both of which are found by going in to Options> Status) you will then be given the option to add existing email accounts. All you will need to add your Gmail account is your email address and the password you use to access your Gmail account.
Once this has been done, send yourself the service books from the same site and you will be up and running.
If you require any further help or support, feel free to check out our Blackberry Help Simulators or feel free to let us know as we would be happy to hep you further.
