How do I enable blackberry services on a foreign blackberry?

Q. I have someone coming over from abroad(Pakistan) with a Blackberry. I live in the US and am wondering how she can get blackberry services on her phone. The phone uses sim cards. Would she need to get a plan with a company like T- Mobile? Maybe the prepaid plans, since she is the US for a month. Thanks.

A. If she turns off data roaming and connects via WiFi only, she'll get BB services as normal.

Or she can do as you suggest and insert a prepaid US domestic SIM with a BlackBerry add-on which will allow her to use data in the USA and make US domestic calls at a far lower cost than if she were to use her own Pakistani SIM whilst roaming. Using a US SIM may require getting her phone unlocked.

The only other issue is that most smartphones sold in Pakistan are imported used units from other countries. A very significant number are stolen and have been network blocked in their original country. There is a chance that your friend's phone may be blocked in the USA if it has previously been reported as lost or stolen in the US.

Have loaded software and manager; but the box to check to sync calendar/contacts is static and cannot be activated.

A. Your Blackberry Curve came with a software (CD) which you should use to set up your email by picking only the ones you want on your system without including the other program to be included. Good luck
