hey, how are the RIM 7290s? i know they came out in late 2004, i paid 40$ off ebay, it is for Cingular/AT&T but im using my unicel sim in it, wondering if it will work...i have a sony ericson the fold up one, black and orange with walkman, but it got wet, i can get it to turn on, battery works, just wont get signal, so i might sell that...


but anyways, any special stuff on this phone? will i have internet, bluetooth, aim messanger?

i tried my sim card from unicel in dads new razr for at&T/cingular it asked for a psss code, but in my friends it worked...so what happens if i get that code? any way to bypass?

thanks allot guys, im also looking for a bluetooth and usb cable if anyone can help me out, possible anohter battery for it too


herees the one i boguht

You will likely need to get it unlocked

7290 is bluetooth capable

That phone is a tank! It cam take can take a beating!

Not sur if AIM is available for 7290

You can use any usb to miniusb cable

You will have internet as long as you have a blackberry data plan!

Can fin an extra battery on ebay fairly cheap or at any number of this sites sponsors

IMHO get an 8700

You are not going to get data for the phone with that plan. You might mess up your dad's sim card if you keep on entering codes.
