Default Howdy - Bought a 7105t - how to set up with existing T-Mobile account?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Folks - this site has been a great resource for me. I've bought a 7105t from a friend who tried it for a month and didn't like the predictive text and would love to add it to my current T-Mobile account. My account is currently set up as a regular phone account with one of the cheap (free) samsung phones. According to the T-Mobile op all I need to do is call and add the $19.99 Blackberry rider, transfer my sim card and all will be hunky dory - I am betting however there is more to it

Anyone done this before?

That should be all you have to do. Just make sure they add the $19.99 BlackBerry Data Plan. Good luck!

If it was used with a BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) account and registered to another e-mail account, you may have to have T-Mobile release it so you can register your BB.
