Default Recieved Black Berry while abroad!???!!

Please Login to Remove!

Ok folks, if anyone can please help my poor soul...

I am from the US, I just upgraded my verizon phone to a verizon BB phone...but I got it to be shipped straight to Prague ( Where I am )

Ok, I have never had a blackberry before so all of this is new to me. I turned on the BB and it registered but then I switched out the SIM ( which came with the phone and yes the phone is unlocked ) and put in a prepaid SIM that I bought here. Now I want to know if I can still setup my email using the free wifi connection I have?

First, "i" before "e" except after "c".

Second, you will need to get your phone unlocked before you can use your device with another provider's sim card.

Third, you cannot set up email without a BB data plan on your account. Wifi alone will not do it. Sorry.
