    I bought a Blackberry 9650 from the US. i wanted to know if email & BB Messenger service will work in UK. If it doesnt i want to cancel the order. Its unlocked and previously was locked to sprint. I want to use t-mobile Uk.

    Thanks

    It should work as long as you are getting a data plan through uk t-mobile

    You will need to get a UK T-Mo SIM card to replace the Sprint SIM card that should be in it.

    You also need to install the right service books. as T-mobile UK doesn't support your device you need to manually install these. If you do a search you can find a couple of threads about the Storm, different device of coarse, but the same procedure

    Don't know about BBM because I don't use it, but I've had no problems with BIS / email etc. on US purchased 9650 on UK Orange, so would imagine no probs on t-mobile.

    Did you install any service books manually?

    I don't know how to add service books manually. I got the internet and bbm working but I still get activation required.
