    You probably will not be able to because the PIN is registered with Orange and if you use a different device BIS will not work on it. Unless you buy the curve from Orange first and then buy a sim card for it and set it up at the store, then it is most definately possible.
    Depending on what operator the curve is locked to, maybe T-Mobile or Vodafone, you will have to "carrier release" it ... that is, let the PIN be usable by any operator in the UK.

    I actually just checked the link the OP provided and Orange provides BIS for 5 pounds a month ... not sure what it includes though

    As far as i'm aware you can't just add the bisvoice product onto a PAYG account unless you've bought the Indigo from Orange. Which you could do. Alternatively you can add it onto any contract with orange for a fiver a month.
