Does Boost offer BB services? That would be a place to start.

Just put a Boost Mobile SIM in it.

And no they do not offer a BB Data plan.

A Boost Berry is a BlackBerry with generic data.

A 7100i on boost works but with a few downsides. You can't use the oem browser so get opera mini (btw there is no way around this trust me). Text messaging and email do not work either. A few apps I use on my Boostberry are bbmaps, jivetalk, and google maps. I set up my email accounts as speed dials 1-3 on opera and my 4-6 are the compose screens to the corresponding accounts. I also have tv listings and stored in speed dial. Also, you get the internet free with boost when you use a Berry ;)
