Hi, I have a Nextel and was thinking about purchasing a used Blackberry. Is this possible? And if so, what should I do when I purchase it? Any help would be great.
Yes, you can do this. Nextel only supports blackberry 8520 and 7100i, so you'll need one of those. eBay is fine, but make sure it's for Nextel. Before you buy it, get the unit's IMEI number and call Nextel to make sure the unit isn't stolen.
Once you get it, you should be able to just pop in your SIM card. You'll have to call Nextel and add the blackberry data plan, its like 30-40/mo for unlimited data.
Once i get it, would i have to activate it? Or would it come activated once i pop in my sim card?? Another thing, would the blackberry charge be on top of what we are already paying per month??
Do you want the blackberry for the PDA function ? The mandatory Blackberry Data plan is on top of whatever minute plan you have and I think it's a little steep. Take a good look at the 1930 if you want some type of mobile office. The (optional) data plan is only 10.00 a month.

Not anymore! You can have a BB without a BB plan. However be careful because high data charges can easily occur. Too many buttons to play around with on those Blackberries.
