And if you buy a used device on eBay or from any other source or person, you would have no assistance either. Buying used BBs can be problematic. Please see our FAQ for an article on buying a used BB on eBay. It has some good advice on buying any used BB, from eBay or elsewhere.
As all GSM BlackBerry devices sold now are quad-band GSM, and all of the carriers in SA are GSM-based, then any unlocked GSM BlackBerry will work.
