You could try actually looking at the blackberry website before buying models, it will tell you if its GSM (sim slot) or CDMA (no sim slot) or a CDMA with sim slot for international use.

AT&T is GSM, and therefore has SIM slots, and uses IMEI.
ESN is typically used by CDMA carriers.

A "bad ESN" means one that is blocked and cannot be registered with a carrier.
