Hands up those who think BlackBerry handsets get a raw deal? Well, you’re not the only ones, because Vodafone are giving ‘Freebees’ to pay as you go Blackberry owners in the UK who top up at least £10. Amongst other things, you will get free BBM and 100MB extra data on top of your top-up (if you see what I mean!). Vodafone BlackBerry Freebee lasts for 30 days and can be used with Simply Pay as you go price plans. See below for more details.
Vodafone UK launches Vodafone BlackBerry® Freebee
Vodafone is introducing a new Pay as you go Freebee, perfect for those who really love their BlackBerry®.
Vodafone is helping customers stay connected with the new Vodafone BlackBerry® Freebee on Pay as you go. When they top up £10 or more, customers will be able to get messages in real time with the ever-popular BBM™ service, completely free, along with internet browsing, email and access to BlackBerry AppWorld™ within the UK, all on top of their credit. Plus, Vodafone BlackBerry® Freebee also includes an extra 100MB of UK internet, so they can now watch videos and download music, whilst continuing to use their credit on whatever they want. Opting in is as easy as calling 4355 free at any time. More information is available by visiting your local Vodafone store or at vodafone.co.uk/get-blackberry
