| | Using Blackberries in Japan?

Howdy, I'm new to this forum, so I hope this is the right place to ask this (my first post, please be gentle, etc.)
I'm in the military, currently stationed in Korea. I have an old Verizon Blackberry that I was rather fond of (particularly for email and the organizer), but which cost me an arm and a leg to use with Verizon, and as far as I know, wouldn't work anywhere else. I've been using a pre-paid phone and an iPod for my communication needs, and I have to say the iPod's email and calendar just aren't replacements for my old crackberry.
Is it possible to get a blackberry in Japan? Is it overly expensive? Is it possible to buy one of the worldwide phones (such as one of the Bold models) and use it with a prepaid card in Japan for voice and text and use the wifi for the data stuff? Just figuring out options right now before I head over.
