    Buying a used blackberry (can you get wifi sim cards)

    are there any disadvantages buying it used? ie any features not working or anything?
    Can you get preloaded sim cards with internet on? Because I want pay as you go but I want to be able to use the internet wherever I go, primarily for email.

    Also what are the apps like in comparison to an iphone or htc?

    Thanks a lot!

    Is this easy? What does it require?
    Thanks:thumbsup:

    I'll be reading this with interest OP as I've been thinking about getting a blackberry as well though just through 02. Can upgrade now so it'd be new for me but can't decide whether to get one or not as read mixed reviews.

    It will require the existing user to do this.

    For the BB to access push email you have to use the pin set for the device, this has to be released by the last owner.
    There's no other way to make it work, so if you buy a used one make sure they A: release the pin and B: let you know what it is.

    okay thanks. Any ideas about getting a sim card with wifi on? I believe t mobile did a 6 month one if you buy the phone new but can you get them off eBay or something?

    Also wifi has nothing to do with a sim card.



    you can get sims with it preloaded. Im talking the internet access anywhere not the wifi built in. Sorry if I misdescribed this.

    There's only one on the bay at the mo.

    But there, there as a rule.

    Change the *** to cgi (DOT)ebay

    Looking again, I'm not sure that'll work in a BB as it's an iPhone sim. I don't know if they'll add the BB addon to for you ?
