Can you get BlackBerry Messenger on PAYG?

Can you get BlackBerry Messenger on Pay As You Go or do you need to be on a contract?

In fact: since BB7 or so, you MUST have BBM - payg or contract! Most apps won't work without linking them to BBM! Which is something not often mentioned.
People always are on about BB's high degree of security. But: almost every 3rd party app you get from BB's app World has your email address for spam - ahem, product news... And almost every app will only work if you allow it to link to YOUR BBM! Which means if you're not careful during install your contacts can get spam, too!
Just saying! Anyhoo - BBM comes with all BB add-ons pre-BB10. And for BB10 you need no special add-on.
