Australian MVNO Crazy John’s has announced its plans to offer the pink BlackBerry Peal 8110 for free on its low cost AUD 39 (USD 32.17) BlackBerry service plan.

The BlackBerry plan will give subscribers unlimited mobile data access, including email, IM and mobile browsing. The plan supports up to a maximum of 10 ISP e-mail accounts.

Crazy John’s, which uses the Vodafone Australia network and was recently bought out by Vodafone, has made it clear that the BlackBerry service plan will be subject to a 24 month contract. In addition to the unlimited data offering Crazy John’s will charge subscribers AUD 0.47 (USD 0.39) for every 30 seconds of voice calls made. The plan will also include an AUD 0.35 (USD 0.29) flagfall (call initiation fee) for every call made.

Matt Scriven, Head of Marketing for Crazy John's, said: "We think many of our customers will love the slim and fashionable design of the pink BlackBerry Pearl 8110 smartphone, and the incredible value of this BlackBerry service plan will mean that they can own a premium smartphone for less than AUD 40 (USD 32.99) a month."
