You can use it with a pre-paid plan however you will need to change your plan to one of the monthly pre-paid plans and add the data package. A data plan is required for smartphones like a Blackberry.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

No, that plan is for basic phones only, not a BlackBerry.  The BlackBerry will require the pre-paid BlackBerry plan:

Phones that work on the $50 unlimited are:

  • Samsung Gusto, LG Revere, Pantech Caper, ZTE Salute, LG Accolade, Pantech Jest and the Samsung Intensity II
