BlackBerry®'s ability to compress data and BlackBerry®'s unique data abroad tariffs makes it the most cost effective smartphone for retrieving data abroad.
If you are planning to travel abroad it is recommended that you opt in for one of the following tariffs.
Blackberry Data Roaming Tariffs:
|Option 1: Pay per Month||This covers unlimited data usage per month. Ideal if you are using your handset abroad for more than 4 days.||£20.00 per month per handset (min 3 month)|
|Option 2: Pay as you Use||Charge per MB used based on standard GPRS/ 3G roaming charges.||£2.55 per MB within EU £6.00 per MB outside EU. Capped at £33.33, but customer's won't receive any text messages.|
|Option 3: Pay per day||Daily charge for each BlackBerry smartphone. Available for BlackBerry Enterprise Solution users only.||£5.00 for each day the handset is used abroad. (Available with BES) This service is deemed as opted out of the data legislation.|
These tariffs apply to using the BlackBerry® APN which will be set as the default APN. This is used to access all BlackBerry® services, internet, instant messaging and social networking. For more information on how to identify this speak to your dedicated account manager.
The WAP/Mobile APN is used to access: O2 active, some 3rd party applications and tethering to a laptop. Please be advised if you use these services whilst abroad you will be charged separately in addition to your BlackBerry® data tariffs based on the tariff charges listed above.
