Exclamation Blackberry Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

Hey i got a blackberry pearl with no sim card slot, i was wondering if i can get a normal talk n text plan without having to have data or those blackberry add-ons. I would just call their 1-800 # right now but there not 24/7 and its "closing time" for them.

If it has no sim slot its a CDMA blackberry, and will NOT work on a GSM network.
Telling us the carrier might help.

Moved to a more appropriate section

Please use the search function. This has been discussed many times over. But basically, most carriers require a BB data plan. But it would help to know the carrier you use.
