Default Sim card for Pearl from another phone

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all:

I just recently upgraded from a Pearl to a Curve model (both from AT&T). I want to give my Pearl to my wife. She has a Motorola flip phone from AT&T. Can I use the SIM card from her Motorola flip phone in the Pearl ??? Will her number remain the same ???

Thank you;
Bob

Is she on AT&T? If so, and your Pearl is AT&T it'll work fine. You won't get any email or internet without the BB data plan on her account, though, but moving the sim moves the phone number and all provisioning.

Her number will remain the same, and she will be able to make calls/text on the phone. If she's interested in using it for the full functions of the device, make sure that she has a data plan on her line.

You can but you'll need to get a Blackberry data plan on her account. Another $29 per month.

Her pin number will be the one on the Pearl. Like JC said, she'll need the data plan on her line before you can both use BBM.

She (or you) should also call AT&T and let them get the database up to snuff on the SIM card (write the number down), the phone number, the PIN & everything else - adjust away from whatever you signed up for with Moto & into whatever she needs with BB - and make sure they don't count it as a new contract.
