    old plan and sim card to blackberry

    Advertisement



    i currently have serivce with cingular with basic text messaging and cell service. i have an unlocked blackberry that i want to use with my old sim card. can i just use the phone as i normally did with my motorola L2 without being charge extra. i don't need all the email, internet and other services that you buy with a data plan for the blackberry. i just want to make and receive calls and text message.

    Yes you should be able to. Depending on how old your sim is I would recommend upgrading it for a newer one. You will not be able to send picture messages but text will work just fine. You just may have to get the messaging center number from your old phone.

    Yes, it will work fine but you'll regret not having the data plan. I bought my pearl back in february and used it strictly for phone/text until about a week ago when I got the data plan. There is SO much you can do with this phone, and I had no idea. I didn't even like my purchase until now. I just bought it because it was "pretty."

    If everything you have saved to your phone is set to save to sim instead of save to phone, you won't lose anything when you swap out the sim cards. I didn't call cingular/at&t either because they wouldn't let me get rid of my POS pink razr until April (contract issues, etc.) so I bought my phone on ebay.

    Call ATT. You won't get in "trouble" for getting a new phone. They may not have let You upgrade through them at a cheaper price, but they won't "scold" You for changing your phone. i have them and i change my phone on an average of once every six months. Get the data plan, You won't regret it one bit!!
