Your on AT&T, who once finding an IMEI in their database of a blackberry, will automatically add a blackberry data plan.

If the device is an ATT branded BB or is unlocked, it should work with your SIM, but as MD said above, you will automatically get the BB data plan once ATT scans and sees that it is a BB.

If it has been added, it won't "go away" until you call AT&T to cancel. If it was added, you would receive a text message saying that it had.

A personal BB data plan is $30 per month on AT&T.
