I've wanted a blackberry for a long time and now I'm worried I can't even use it.
A Fido SIM will not work in a Rogers locked phone. You can unlock the phone for use on other carriers. It's around $15 or $20 to do so. Horizon Wireless is one of the best. I've used them a few times and they always got the unlock code to me within a day.
