    Your current SIM should work in the new BB. You should call AT&T and give them the IMEI # of the new phone. Of course, you will have to add a data plan to your account if you don't already have one.

    yes it will, it should anyway. I had a sony phone and all i did was put in my sim card(a pearl) and it worked. your phone number and all your info is on the sim. you will have to get a data plan if you want to though.

    I don't want a data plan. Why do I have too? I know alot of apps won't work and stuff but I know there is not a rule that says blackberry's have to have a data plan. My friend has a bb and he doesn't. Right now i can't afford an unlimited data plan.

    By the way what is a IMEI #?

    NO. Not with AT&T you don't. Be careful of data usage as AT&T would love nothing more than to send you a big fat bill from your data usage without a data plan. The browser may not even access the internet without a data plan anyway. Just beware of data usage with no data plan adds up quick. Give AT&T a call with questions and concerns if in doubt.

    That's what I thought. I will be careful. I might get a data plan in the future but not now. $30 a month adds up!

    I got one from Creig's List. Just pop your sim in, enter the pin and ime in your bis account and your bb is ready to go.

    Also a ime is just a number unique to your bb. I'm not sure, but I think it is to confirm that your pin is your pin so your emails won't end up on a random persons bb.

    Ok thank's guys

    well I have thought about a data plan but I think I will need more funds. If I have enough money by the end of the summer for data for a year I might get it.

    By the way what is a IMEI #?
    IMEI = "International Mobile Equipment Identity"

    its a 15 digit number that is found on the sticker that is located behind the phone where the battery sits... as mentioned above this number identifies the phone to ATT and allows att to know what kind of phone it is (make/ Model/ color..etc etc) if you have insurance on your plan you want them to be able to identify the kind of phone you have just in case you ever loose it and need to make a claim...
