Taking my BlackBerry State side

Hey guys,

I'm going to Canada and the US for 7 months and wondered what the possibility is of my BlackBerry working over there. I bought it here in the UK. I was planning on buying a cheap phone out there with an American SIM card. But I thought hmmm, maybe my BB will work anyway with a US SIM?

Any help would be much appreciated. Perhaps which is the best service provider over there? Maybe I should get a Verizon for while I'm over there? I know alot of people rave about them.


Btw, does anyoneelse have the same problem as me on here? When I type it wont let me put spaces in and I have to go back through my post to put them in. It's really annoying and a completely different problem I know but I thought meh, while I'm here. It ONLY happens when I type in this forum. Doesnt happen anywhere else online or on my laptop!!!


Thanks guys!
