You will need to unlock the BB and then geta BB data plan activated on your account, have the proper service books sent.

Please do a SEARCH for more information. A little research on your part, tends to g a long way. Here is something from our FAQ to get you started. The info is good for acquiring any used BB, from eBay or any other source: Buying a BlackBerry off eBay - BlackBerryFAQ

In different terms, you have to get your phone to be compatible with your carrier and you will need to pay a monthly charge for a Blackberry data plan with usually runs between $25-$30 a month.
