The short answer is yes, but it's more involved than just swapping out SIM cards.
The new device needs to be "Activated" on the BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server). If you try to do it yourself, they will see that you have an 8100 on the BES (and stick out like a sore thumb in a sea of 8700's!), so I suggest working with them rather than trying to just swap out on your own.
