Default Any problems I might encounter?

Please Login to Remove!

I found a Blackberry 9000 for cheap (100) and I want to get it, but its unlocked and I'll be using it on TMobile. I am wondering, will I encounter any problems while using it on T Mobile? I don't care about not being able to use 3G speeds, but MMS and SMS is basically what I will be using this phone for mostly. My old 8800 has about 37000 messages, So I'm a huge text and picture message freak.

Buying a BlackBerry off eBay - BlackBerryFAQ

"eBay" could also be used or second hand.

I don't know prices, but if you say it is cheap, that to me is a red flag right at the start. Be very careful.

I used a 9000 on TMO for almost 2 years. It works just fine. I had no issues

Thankfully its not from Ebay, but rather Craigslist, so I'm going to the guy's house to check out first hand. As for problems, I was referring to maybe issue's like Service Books being an issue, and such.

Still, don't miss the point. Read the FAQ article beforehand.
