It's not just the right SIM card. It is a SIM card with a BlackBerry Data Plan on it - that is very, very important. You could take a US SIM card with a BlackBerry Data Plan on it and it might work - depending on roaming agreements - but then you'd have a US phone number, and pay huge roaming fees.
If Orange won't add the BlackBerry Data Plan to your account, you may have to buy a local BlackBerry.
It's not so different here. Some carriers do not allow "foreign" BlackBerrys on their network.
