Exclamation Unlocked Blackberry 9550

Please Login to Remove!

I am soon going to be a new member of the ever increasing blackberry users group. I have previously used Palm Treo smartphone. I have a general question about the BB 9550.
If i buy an Unlocked BB 9550 which says that i can use any SIM anywhere in the world would i have any problem with using the BB PIN by using GSM? I am getting the 9550 from USA and planning to use it with Vodafone in India.
Are there any problems that i could face?
Or should i just go for the Bold 9700 which is GSM anyways.
Please help

You will have some problems setting up the service books for Blackberry Data for the 9550, but the voice and SMS will work fine.
