Blackberry data on Koodo?


The phone rep says I cant get Blackberry Data on Koodo. Prepaid. But I think I see that Koodo sells Blackberrys. This doesnt make sense to me. I just want to be able to reveice emails and some social when Im out! Any answers are much appreciated!

Hi Matt, The newer Blackberries make use of normal data, even the older ones will work with any of Koodo's new plans. If all you want to do is receive emails and some social, you could probably get by with the lowest data plan, flex plan or even prepaid (that's what I use and I have the BB Q10 among other phones).
Oh good to know ty. I have a Blackberry 9900 Bold.It's a fairly new phone I think. on Koodo. If I add data to my plan will it work with this Blackberry?

No it won't. Only BB 10 devices can work with the prepaid data add-ons. So only the BlackBerry Z10, Q10 and Q5.
TY Ahmad I am looking for a prepaid service with data for Blackberry 9900 Bold. If you know any pls let me know 🙂 Thanx
My Blackberry Bold 9900 has H+ icon at the top. I read this is the data. Does that mean it will work? Just hoping it will 😕

Until Koodo adds a BlackBerry specific data add-on, your phone will not be able to use data. It doesn't matter what your phone shows or displays, Koodo does not offer the services that will allow your phone to connect to data. There is no hope until then 😞
TY Ahmad for clarifying! That's too bad, I like Blackberry but I can't even get my emails over WiFi or set it up without a Blackberry Data Plan. Anyone know what I can do about this? Im new to BB and not a power user. Sorry if your answer is just reiterating what youve stated. Sorta OT

You can't really do anything, unfortunately. Koodo has decided not to offer Blackberry services on prepaid, their isn't really a way around that. Your options are to either go to a carrier that has prepaid blackberry data (Bell & I think maybe Rogers?), to switch to a postpaid plan, or get a new Blackberry device like the Q10/Z10/Q5 and stay prepaid on Koodo.

If you use Gmail you can put the Gmail app on your phone the BlackBerry Desktop Software. Then you can use that app over wifi. If you want to use the Web over wifi you'd need to install opera mini browser through the BlackBerry Desktop Software. Then you can use that over wifi.
