Does anybody knows a way to make this work in this configuration, or it just won't?
Thanks in advance for your time and wisdom!!!!
The prepaid SIM card would need a BIS plan provisioned on it... which it does not.
US carriers do not offer BlackBerry Data on a prepaid SIM.
If you have your Argentinian SIM card in the device and just use WiFi... you should be able to get BlackBerry Data via WiFi. Just turn off 'Mobile Network' in Manage Connections and enable WiFi to be sure that you're not using carrier data and incurring roaming fees.
