Hi xpanda,

yes, you can use a Blackberry on Tesco Mobile UK.
If your Blackberry runs BB10 OS (Q5, Q10, Z10, Z30, Passport...), you do not need a special
Blackberry data bundle. BB10 devices work with 'normal' data add-ons.

If your Blackberry phone is running BB7 or 6 OS, you need a Tesco Blackberry Bundle.
Read Tesco's Bundle page.

What model BB do you own?

BlackBerry® data Bundle

Tesco Mobile BlackBerry® Bundle gives you access to the Tesco Mobile BlackBerry® Internet Service.

Notifications will be given by either text message, by email to the email address you registered with us when you first applied for the BlackBerry® Internet Solution. Changes will also be notified on the Tesco Mobile website.


Well... xpanda, what do I know? The above is from Tesco Mobile's webpage that I linked to earlier. I missed the bit where you were on contract. Sorry :(
Having said that: I don't see any reason why they cannot provide the service to contract customers.... If you had a prepay BB on Tesco Mobile and wanted to switch to a contract, they should be so happy....
