Use of Prepaid Card with Blackberry

I have an unlocked BB Bold 9930.  I am trying to use a prepaid AT&T sim card.  The phone service works, but internet and e-mail will not work.  I understand that I may need a BB service pack.  Is it possible to use internet services with a prepaid card?

Re: Use of Prepaid Card with Blackberry

Mostly, all of the blackberry devices produced by RIM are capable of using blackberry services. That's the concept of BB. You probably will have to inquire the service plan informaitons from your respective service provider of the SIM card. :smileyhappy:

Re: Use of Prepaid Card with Blackberry

Pre-paid cards are not usable for BlackBerry data plans on AT&T, and you must sign a contract with AT&T for the services you need.

Otherwise, as you've discovered, all you'll get is voice and SMS, and any data used will suck that pre-paid card dry pretty quickly.

 

Call AT&T.

I think Boost might have one in the USA.
