    email requires a blackberry data plan and a properly set up account with RIM.

    I thouight a US sim card won't work in the 8830 on US carriers because it only has a dual band 900/1800 MHZ GSM radio not the quad band GSM radio (US GSM is 850/1900)?

    he never stated where he was located. he is probably overseas using a european t-mobile SIM. considering here we call it "prepaid" and in europe they mostly call it "pay as you go". and yes, the 8830 only has non north american gsm bands.
