    Hello everyone,

    I got a Blackberry 8700c from a friend, it used to be a work phone. It says cingular on it.

    My friend mentioned I could have it but it is locked.

    I don't even know where to begin to make this thing ready to be used, I wanted to set it up as a pay as you go or anything like that for my girlfriend.

    It does not have a SIM card in it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start with this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not being in the US i will try to answer as best i can.

    How ever if available you could buy a Pay&Go Sim from AT&T and i am assuming you would have the basic SMS and Calling functions.

    To get the full use of the BB you would need a BB Data Plan. This i would think is only available on a contract. You would need to check this.

    However, once this is done, you would certainly have the BB running.
