I am looking to get the Blackberry Pearl 8120 from expansys. Is is possible to insert the SIM card from my current mobile phone into the 8120 or do I have to sign up for a contract?

I had my existing Vodafone contract switched on for voice and data. Plugged the old sim card in the Blackberry and away it went. So I don't see why you shouldn't be able to use your existing number and sim. It may be worth checking with your Network provider first.

(A little tip. If you use MS Outlook for your contacts list. Make sure you've got your SIM details synchronised, as the Blackbery synchronises over wireless. I ended up with duplicates all over the shop)

Thanks for the info Steve, I will check with Vodafone first and see what they say before I part with any cash.

I have got a pay-as-you-go SIM so that should work ok?

No I have not bought it. Deciding to go for the white Nokia 6110 Navigator. Not sure where to buy it from.

Between the 2 i would go for blackberry, its slim and easy to use im now an expert at its menus. About the services i cant tell u much cos i live in Pakistan and services are very cheap here, incoming call is free, limited number of sms is free, blackberry messenger is free..
So i might not be a good person to tell u about the services, but i have been using BB pearl for about 5 mos now, and im very happy with it.
it cant record sound or make movie & camera is very bad, but i can live with that Smile
