Who told you that? First of all, most (if not all) 7230s were "SIM card locked" to the original carrier. So if it says T-Mobile on it, it is probably locked to T-Mobile. Unless you somehow got an unlocked 7230. I am guessing that when you put the Virgin Mobile SIM card in it, it either says SIM Card Error or Data Connection Refused.
Part two (as if that wasn't enough): Virgin Mobile does not support BlackBerry. So even if you get the SIM card to work, and the BB is unlocked, you know have a goofy looking, expensive cell phone.
