Default Re: Help me use my BB Bold 9700 on Airvoice system

My BB 9700 was my work phone and when I retired, they let me keep it. When I was working, I was on the work plan and had access to all the Blackberry push features. When I got my own Paygo plan, I could no longer use BIS features, but still had internet access. I do really like the phone: the keypad, the mp3 player, wifi, the camera, etc. all work great. Therefore , I am hoping to keep this phone for a while (itís free!).

So are you all saying that if I go to AirVoice, I wonít even get to use wifi because an AirVoice-specific service book is needed for wifi? Iím confused because if I turn 3G off, I still have wifi. Are you saying that the SIM card is AT&T and therefore the wifi works, but once I put in an AirVoice SIM card, wifi will no longer work without a new service book? Are you saying I'm stuck with AT&T unless I'm willing to pay for BB-specific data plan on new carrier that can download new service books to my BB?

Thank you.
