Unlocked Blackberry Pearl and Data Plan

Unlocked Blackberry Pearl and Data Plan

My Brother from London gifted me a unlocked BlackBerry with Phone Wi-Fi capability. Since it is unlocked I want to put my curent ATT sim card into the new unlocked phone.

 

If I do that, will ATT detect my phone and automatically put me on the data plan, because I really do not need any data plan as I do not use much of it.

 

Can anyone please help.

I just want to know if I get an unlocked blackberry from at&t, would I be able to use the data bis services of another mobile carrier on the unlocked at&t blackberry?

Another carriers BB data plan will not work with an AT&T SIM card. However, an unlocked AT&T Blackberry should work fine if you use another carriers GSM SIM card. Getting their data plan to work should work as well, but check with the carrier that you plan on using the device with, if you are not sure.
