Question Buy 8700 here (no contract), then contract in Greece

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone, I'm new here so hello to all blackberry fans

Basically I reside in Greece and I'm now in the States (Chicago) for some business.

What I want to do is to buy a Blackberry 8700 here in Chicago, unlocked, with a T-Mobile to-go or other cardphone service, and then be able to use it with a contract in one of the BB service providers in Greece (namely TIM,,

i tried contacting the greek operators to figure things out but to no avail - the guys are dinosaurs. I suppose for now I can just buy a new BB 8700 for like 400 bucks, and then buy a $50 T-Mobile card to make it work.. and then pray its gonna work with greek operators.. who still offer BB 7290 in contracts

Thanks in advance for any help guys. Really appreciated.
