    No you won't have a problem as long as the phone is unlocked. I'm using an AT&T/Cingular phone on the T-Mobile network with no issues at all.
    I also recently added the data plan and the internet browser was added to my phone.
    The only thing you may want to change is the theme on the phone. Originally it comes with the AT&T theme but under the options you can change it.
    So just pop in your sim card and you'll be all set!
    Don't hesitate to ask if you have any more questions.

    No problem. Glad I could help.

    Here's a site you may find useful:
    101 Demonstrator for the BlackBerry® 8800™ Smartphone.

    It has a run through on device setup and such. It'll also show you where the SIM card goes, which I might add is a bit of a pain to get in (its a tight fit).

    So good luck with your 8800, I already love mine and I'm sure you will too.
    Anything else just ask!
