Blackberry 7520 help

My  old phone died and my brother gave me his blackberry 7520 but it didn't have a sim card with it.  i was wondering if there was a place i could purchase a sim card?  i am currently using the sim card from my old boost mobile phone and that works great for receiving and making calls and using the direct connect feature.  However will i be able to use that sim card for other blackberry features, sms, accessing the web, and accessing e-mail?  my next question is how do i set up a e-mail account?  do i need to establish a monthly service plan with nextell/blackberry?


thanks to anyone who can provide some help.

Re: Blackberry 7520 help

In order to enable the full BB funtionality you will need to contact Nextel and get a new service agreement, Boost mobile a MVNO never had BB service enabled, in contacting Nextel tell can send you a new sim card and enable all the BB functions for you, for a contract of course.
