Hi guys,

I was just thinking, if I purchase an unlocked blackberry from the States,
would I be able to use it here in the UK without any problems ?

I'm assuming you mean to purchase a local SIM card as your location says the UK? If so yes, the voice part should work fine. The data part will be another story though - I'm not quite certain how it would work and I've seen various people say different thigns about it. If you search around you will see lots of people who have tried it.

You won't have any problems if the blackberry is unlocked and supports GSM. Look for support for the 900/1800 band. If it's only 850/1900 or CDMA it won't work here in Europe.
