T-Mobile launches BlackBerry Pearl 3G on prepay
T-Mobile has become the first operator to launched the new BlackBerry Pearl 3G on pay-as-you-go.
Customers who buy the handset before 31 August will be offered six months free email and internet.
A black BlackBerry Pearl 3G is available for £249.99 and is part of T-Mobile’s ‘mission to bring more affordable, top end smartphones to the wider market’.
T-Mobile currently offers around 25 handsets on pay-as-you-go including the BlackBerry curve 8520 and the Samsung Tocco Lite.
T-Mobile head of device marketing Nicola Shenton said: ‘Making the BlackBerry Pearl 3G available to our customers on a pay-as-you-go tariff is part of T-Mobile’s mission to bring more affordable, top end smartphones to the wider market.
‘BlackBerrys are no longer just for business use. More and more of our customers are asking for them, and by offering the handsets on a pay-as-you-go tariff, we’re making it more accessible.’
