Exclamation internet question

Please Login to Remove!

basically, i am about to purchase a second hand blackberry bold 9000 handset.
i am with the network three and wondered if anyone knew if my sim card will work in it.
the handset is currently locked to orange but i can get it unlocked easily.

i don't want to buy it if it's not going to work so will the internet and mail and everything work properly?? i have an unlimited internet thing on my tarriff.

but yeah. please let me know

you need to get the Blackberry data plan on your account.
a "unlimited internet thingy" wont work with a blackberry.
