Default Help For BB Newbie

Please Login to Remove!

Hello Guys and Gals,

I am going to be getting a Blackberry 8100 on the weekend.
I currently have an Iphone, i can change my tariff and use the Pearl on my current sim, but i am unsure if i should completely ditch my iphone for a pearl? So i considered putting a pay and go sim in it, but is this possible?

I would like someone to explain registering and BIS to me please, and the process of the procedure?
Also could i get your advice on the BB 8100?

Any replies would be appreciated

If the 8100 is unlocked you can put a pre-paid sim in it. If you decide to use the iPhone sim make sure you get a blackberry data plan for push emails and browser use. Suretype will take you a few days to get use to.
