Ahoy hoy fellow Blackberry users,
First off, been using my 7130e for quite a number of months. I've been a Sprint customer for a very long time. I'm moving to New Zealand next month and I am starting to learn about how GSM and sim cards work.
Here's my question....
Can I buy a T-Mobile Blackberry 8100 Pearl phone here in the United States, get it unlocked (I've read there are a few people who help you do this), move to New Zealand and then get a Vodafone sim card, pop it in and I'm good to go?
I don't really know how any of this really works, from what it sounds like my plan will work. Vodafone NZ isn't selling 8100's yet and I don't want to get there only to have only the phone portion work. They do sell blackberries and I'll buy a blackberry plan I just don't know how it all fits together.
Thanks in advance, cheers
