Do you have a Blackberry data plan? Not some generic smartphone plan, but a bona fide Blackberry data plan? That's critical to the entire Blackberry experience. Also, if you're running low on internal memory you need to do a re-start by pulling the battery while running. When a Blackberry runs low on internal memory (called "memory leak") the device slows down, some apps won't launch, and the Blackberry can freeze and lose messages. Sounds like when you pulled out the media card you pulled the battery to get at it. That would perform the reset and you'd be good for a while. Sounds like it wasn't the media card, but the act of pulling the battery out that helped you.
If you put your SIM card into a Blackjack, and if you have a Blackberry data plan, you will automatically get the full MEdia Net data plan on your new Blackjack. It's best to change the plan to save some money. The basic MEdia Net plan is cheaper than the Blackberry plan. But it will work immediately in case you want to try it and see if it's right for you without changing your Blackberry plan. That way you can go back to a Blackberry if you decide it suits you better.
