you should be able to buy a unlocked storm, put your sim card in and it will work.
AS LONG AS you go to the orange BIS site and use the Change Device function. enter the new PIN and your service books will be pushed to the new phone.

Follow these steps when buying a used device:
Buying a BlackBerry off eBay - BlackBerryFAQ

Also, what issues were you having with the 8900? Depending on what they were, you may run into the same thing with the Storm.
