Can I use a BlackBerry® smartphone on Koodo Prepaid? (Data Boosters).

I realize the description pertains to older devices, like the BlackBerry Curve 9320, which for some reason, doesn't appear in Koodo's prepaid phone lineup anyway. My suggestion, include a short sentence mentioning that Data Booster add-ons are available for pre-paid BlackBerry Z10 & Q5 devices. To confirm, I was able to apply a $20 data booster add-on to the Z10.

In the nitty gritty it's there somewhat but yeah it'd be better if it was above the data boosters section. Maybe something like...

"Not available for pre BlackBerry 10 (Z10, Q10, Q5, Z30) devices"

For now it appears like this:

(6) Talk or Data Booster add-ons don’t expire if account is active. Talk or Data Booster add-ons are available for use only when there is a non-expired base plan on the account. Booster add-ons will be removed from the account upon account deactivation. Anytime minutes are charged by the minute and the airtime required to connect your calls is drawn from the included minutes. All data usage will be rounded up to the nearest 10 KB. Data Booster add-ons are not available with a BlackBerry Curve or Bold smartphone.

Yup, I read that part, but the page I'm referring to says that Data Booster add-ons are not available with BlackBerry smartphones. This may lead some to believe that data boosters are not available at all. Also, the Blackberry Curve isn't even in the pre-paid phone lineup. I think this area could use a little revising. :-)

It's odd that Virgin Mobile offers a pre-paid Blackberry plan which includes BB Social (Facebook, Twitter & BBM), plus you can purchase data bundles on it too. I love BB Bridge, but on pre-paid Koodo I have to give up data and pic texting to use my paid-for and unlocked BB Curve. I keep hoping Koodo will offer a competitive pkg, but once my credits run out on my account, I'm afraid I'll be switching over, much as I prefer Koodo over Virgin (prior bad experience there).

Don't want to sign up for another term to get an OS10 phone to pay off right now, so it will be a sucky decision.
