Unlocking allows you to use a SIM card from another provider for voice and data, if the provider has BB service. As long as you have a data connection, you should have the browser and messenger available.

AFAIK, the 8707v is not WiFi capable.

There are no disadvantages to unlocking the device. Everything should work as normal as long as you have the BB data plan as dubdub suggested.

Please see the above link from JSanders. You ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, DEFINITIVELY, 100% must have a BlackBerry DATA PLAN in order to use ANY data features.

I understand that English is not your first language, but we can't say it any clearer. Ask your provider for a "BlackBerry Data Plan". That is the ONE AND ONLY way that any data features will function on your device.

jliverty, you have PMed me and I have answered this question as well. It is the internet connection to your BlackBerry. You must call your voice carrier to but this internet service to your phone--called a BlackBerry Data Plan.

What that will translate to in your native language, I don't know, but that is what you need.

Good luck.

No. I mean exactly what I posted above. BlackBerry Data Plan. Nothing more, nothing less.

No. You'll need to contact your provider and see if they offer "Blackberry Data." If they don't you won't get BB data. It's been posted above and it's plain and simple.

The backlight has a sensor to dim the lights when the ambient light is dark or usage is steady.

The trackwheel can break, and it can be repaired.

jliverty, you asked me all this in a PM this morning and I answered it clearly.

You will need a trackwheel to operate certain facets of the 8707 BB, such as for sending an email, etc.

Is your trackwheel broken or not?
