    minigiant, Welcome to PinStack.

    While you can use the 8700 on o2 without a data plan, for phone and SMS, it won't be using it to it's potential. But to specifically answer your question, Yes you should be able to use it for Phone and SMS only with your current SIM.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Thumbs up Re: please help

    thank you very much. the thing is i like the phone because of its design and qwerty keyboard and i would not use it for internet at all i thought i would have no problems using my sim but wanted to make sure.

    also is there any big differnce between the 8700g and the 8707g? which is newer? i have an offer to buy a brand new 8707g for 100Ł is that a good deal?

    thank you so so much for your help

    If you aren't getting a dataplan, you will not have email or Internet access. All you will have a is phone that you can synch with Outlook for calendar and contact info. IMHO, you get a much better phone for the money if you aren't using all of the capabilities of the 8700.

    IMHO = in my humble opinion. The 8700 was released in England at the end of 2005/early 2006. And the 8707 shortly there after.

    Can't really tell you the differences between the 8700 and the 8707.

    You can compare devices at http://eu.blackberry.com/eng/devices...p?navId=H0,C63 (not sure why people never refer to the manufacturer's site for product info)...

    Re: please help

    The reason that I didn't post a link to a comparison site is that I didn't have the link to the european site and the 8707 isn't listed on the North American site. Now that I have that link I can the next time I need it.

    Thanks takshi.

    Sorry, rcbjr, I wasn't referring specifially to you. Just to people in general when shopping for a product. Granted, the manufacturer always has biased sales materials but in almost all cases you can find spec sheets which can be handy.

    I love the comparison site on the BB website. And I have been looking for the link to the EU site for a long time. Now that you gave it to me I'm happy.
