question #2 i cannot get the personal email account to work. buddy of mine said i need a blackberry sim card? i just took it from my kaiser. so do i need a blackberry sim card?
ATT doesn't like you to use BB Maps.... I never got it working on my devices (8100, 8130) at varying levels of the OS up through 4.5.

You will need a BlackBerry specific data plan that's attached to the SIM card you're using to get your email working too.
