Default Old sim in pearl?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone, I put a sim card from an active T-Mobile line with T-zones into my old Pearl just to see what would happen. To my surprise, Opera Mini still works, but the Blackberry Browser does not. Does anyone know if I'll start getting charged overages or anything? The network status still says data connection refused though. But the Pearl still calls and gets text messages. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance.

You can use it like it is, phone and SMS, and Opera. Your browser, email and other data will not work.
I don't know if you'll be charged for data from Opera... I'd hate to get the first bill to find out.

That data is not free. You will be charged, no doubt.
