Thumbs down Unlocked BB - using on another carrier

Please Login to Remove!


I would like to know how I can use my Cingular 8800 on another carrier. I am going to be spending some time in India and I need my BB. I was thinking that I was going to use the Cingular International for BB but it was turning out to be too expensive so I have decided to get BB service in India. I wanted to know, even if I get my SIM unlocked on Cingular, can I get it setup in India using the BB service as well as a phone.

My questions are the following:
1. If I get a data plan (not BIS) on the Indian carrier, will I still be able to hit the Cingular BlackBerry servers? I am on the BIS.
2. If not, how do I configure my BB to work with the Indian carrier for the BIS service? I can provisioning from the Indian carrier to have the BIS service.
3. Where is this BB specific information stored? Is it on the SIM?

If I can't switch providers, I'm going to end up buying a BB in India (for no reason since I'm pretty happy with the 8800).
