Using Blackberry Services in the USA on Pay As You Go
by Akif Jakhura - 3/14/11 8:30 AM
i am travelling to the USA in a weeks time and will be there for just over 2 weeks. I will be all over the country from the East Coast to the West....New York, Las Vegas, Washington,
Jacksonville, Miami, etc...to name a few cities i will be visiting.
Whilst i am there i would like to use my Blackberry bold 9700 (GSM) on a countrywide US network. Instead of using it on roaming which considering the time i am there and the fact that i am quite a heavy user would end up in me racking up some rather large charges!, i would prefer to get a local pay as you go SIM card and activate Blackberry services on it and also activate my emails on the same.
I know in other countries i have travelled to, you can get a pay as you go service and pay a fixed monthly fee for blackberry services which makes a lot more economical sense than roaming. Please could someone tell me if such services are offered on pay as you go in the USA and if so which network would be the best one to get for this?
Looking forward to your responses and thank you in advance.
