Re: blackberry 8900 software _Uk

you do not need a software.

if you have a roaming contract, you can just bring your device in the UK and use it with your current SIM card. That is very expensive (except if it's paid by your employer).

if you pay for the subscription, what you need is :
be sure that your device can host a SIM card from a UK carrier. You may need to contact your current carrier and have your device unlocked.

then you can use your BlackBerry as a mobile phone (phone + sms)

if you want data, you have to sign a contract with your locak UK carrier :
1) data plan
2) BlackBerry data plan

usually 1) is included in 2) but the opposite is not true.
