Default Using a US Blackberry in the UK

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone,

I have a Blackberry related question and thought you guys would be the best to ask!

When I was in the US a friend gave me his Blackberry Pearl 8100 that he no longer used. It is on T-Mobile.

Is there anyway I can use it over here in the UK? I only want to use it for BBM as many of my friends use it.

Any help appreciated.

unlock, put your sim card in.

to use blackberry messenger you need a blackberry data plan. (for O2 its a blackberry bolt-on)
