Default Love my 7780 but need HELP!

Please Login to Remove!

I love my 7780 but I need some help.
I just moved from Canada to the US (pacific northwest) and I don't know which companies provide service for my 7780. Any suggestions? And where can I get a sim card for it? (it didn't make it with the move)
Do I need to have it unlocked?

Is it SIM card locked to your carrier? There are two major GSM carriers in the US - Cingular, as mentioned, and T-Mobile. But if your BlackBerry is locked to your Canadian carrier (highly likely) you will have to get it unlocked first.
