    Hello, I have contract with Nextel, right now I have an i776 but I want to purchase a 8350i Blackberry. I already saw some good ones in ebay, and I might buy one already. I have a few questions:

    When I get my blackberry I am going to insert my sim and then it will work.
    But how can I install BBM on it? Is there a way to keep paying my regular contract of my i776 with Nextel and to have the 8350i with bbm and internet?

    THANK YOU

    You need to setup a blackberry data plan or social plan for it to work.

    So I would have to change the plan I have with nextel?

    So there is no way that I can put the bbm and internet for free, and keeping the same plan I have and keep paying the same?
    Bebasue if I change plans i would pay much more a month, and thats what i dont want haha.

    BlackBerry Messenger will not work without a BlackBerry data plan (BIS). Unfortunately there is no other way. If you want it, you will need to pay the fees for BIS.

    Sorry dude, no free data.

    It would be GREAT, but yeah can't do it.

    What I would do is call retentions and see if they will add it for a discounted price.
