I use a blackberry 7290 with Cingular prepaid (Gophone pick your plan) and the voice and SMS work fine, I am also waiting to order a 8700c from amazon in a few days, the prepaid SIM should work with the 8700c just fine, just no blackberry connect. I dont know about adding prepaid minutes to a SIM you recieve with the 8700c, since i had my prepaid account for some time before I got the 7290
