I am currently a Blackberry Pearl user in the UK with my device connected to a UK BES server. I am going to be spending the next 12 months in New York (with some time back in the UK) and looking at the options for using a Blackberry. What I propose to do is as follows:
• Purchase Blackberry Pearl on T Mobile US – with US SIM and number
• Activate on UK BES
• Have Blackberry Pearl SIM unlocked
• Whilst in US use US T-Mobile SIM
• When travelling to the UK replace SIM with my UK T-Mobile SIM
This way I have a local number in both countries and I do not have to pay expensive roaming charges.
Does anyone have experience with a similar situation?
Will the BES be happy with the SIM change?
