SIMs are $35 at any Nextel Authorized service center.
You'll still need to activate, add blackberry service and such.
You can also use a Boost pre-paid sim in a Nextel phone, you just won't ever be able to use the e-mail functions without a 3rd party mail program like the one that reqwireless sells.
Despite what is said, the BB sims are not special, they are in fact less special than phone SIMs because they have a very small storage capacity. A regular Nextel SIM is 64kb and holds 600 contacts. A Blackberry SIM is about 32kb.
This is because the BB stores all the data in the phone and not the sim.
