    in particular with Beeline, MTS or Megafon.
    P.S.: Sorry for bad english

    Hi vlade,

    I wish my english was that good..lol. Welcome to the Stacks. I hope someone can answer your question better, but I would suggest contacting those providers and asking to speak to their PDA Technical Support Team about your concerns.

    Hi vlade, welcome to pinstack. You should be okay if the pearl is unlocked and you are using it on a GSM carrier. Find out if they have a BB plan, otherwise you wont be able to do anything with your pearl. I hope my feedback is usefull.

    thx for answers.
    Our russian carriers dont support the BB plans... but they plan to make this in the near future. So... if i buy BB now, would i be able to use BB with sim-card of my carrier? and which of the functions to me will be not accessible?

    If you buy the BB now and don't have a data plan the device won't be able to do any thing but make and receive calls. Not internet, email, SMS, ECT. Just phone calls.

    BlackBerries are designed to work with BlackBerry data plans, not regular data plans. You can use it with any voice plan (alone if you wish) but will be limited to just voice calls, and SMS... no MMS since that requires data and a service book. There will be no email or web browser. You can still use the media player, calendar, tasks, notes, and bluetooth features of the BlackBerry.
