    If you get it unlocked, and want to use it on Tmobile. I will PM you the super secret settings for the device OR just look here for the settings:

    Yes SMS will work. A lot of people here are using unlocked models on different carriers. The only thing I can see as a pain is, getting the old carrier to release the PIN and IMEI (if you plan on using the data) to the new carrier. But they will end up calling RIM and having it released if all else fails.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    If you buy the phone outright (without a contract) it should already be unlocked.
    Also, one thing is you may not get the same level of customer service from Tmo. Since they may say they are not familiar with the device, even though it's essentially the same.

    I've bought all my BBs on eBay. 7230 7290 7100x 8700g. There are enough going, particularly now, for you to buy a handset for your particular supplier. I remain unconvinced about internet access for models intended for networks other than yours. I suggest that you upload Opera Mini. Its far superior to the BB browser.

    palacefan, Welcome to PinStack. There are basically no internal differences between any of the 8700 devices. And if you are really worried, once you get it unlocked and set up on Tmobile, you can download and install their version of the OS. Then the only difference will be looks and Branding.

    Hope this helps
