You won't need a SIM to have it work on the Verizon network. The SIM allows you to roam on GSM networks. You will need a data plan form Verizon that is specifcally for BlackBerrys in order to get e-mail, browser, etc.

Read this before you buy it: Buying a BlackBerry off eBay - BlackBerryFAQ

Even though it says eBay, the info is still the same. You will need a BB data plan.

RIM has a manufacturing facility in Mexico. The sticker alone isn't cause for any concern.
