Yes you should be able to. You would need to input the correct APN settings (if available) for your particular cell service.

More info here: What are the TCP and APN settings? - BlackBerryFAQ

Also, T-Mobile offers BlackBerry service everywhere that they cover, so you should get a BlackBerry plan.
