    Hi, I bought the Curve with a 2 year data plan plan over the summer. About a week ago I got water in it and it no longer works. If I buy an unlocked 8700 off ebay or the internet, how do I go about activating the phone? Is it as simple as putting my old sim card in? Will I be able to use my data plan and get emails and web access? Thanks a lot.

    if it's unlocked.. or 8700c (C = AT&T / Cingular version) then it's as simple as putting the sim card in.
    and yes, you will be able to use the internet, if you have BIS in your account.

    Everything should work just fine. Just make sure that whoever you buy it from has deleted any IT policy that may be on it.

    also make sure the person already remove the PIN of the BB from his/her BIS account. Otherwise you can't use the push mail
