    @compuman0416 thanks for the reply….ok, heres the deal i did all of ur
    sugg. except for calllin att…bcuz the go phone works fine and i got green
    light on the other 4 suggestions. However, i should metion the plan i
    signed up for(#4) it was simply a 3.00 a day plan_unlimited talk only…and
    the bal. on the acct is low at this time…could this be the issue?? OR
    could it be that the sim is connect with the IMEI number on the go phone?

    @ayome51 Ok thanks for the tip, its easier just to buy a $3 sim card of
    ebay so then you can activate with the blackberry. However you just need to
    make sure to tell your att operator that you do not have your phone yet and
    you just want to activate the sim card.

    And is the 9870 a wifi hookup??

  17. compuman0416 says:

    @NAWFSIDESOLDIER Its the 8320 but thanks for being an ass and trying to
    correct me when your wrong. Google the 8330 and then the 8320. The 8330 is
    a CDMA phone which means it is only for verizon wirelesss, not the t mobile
    phone that i have here(8320). So basically your comment was the stupidest
    thing I have ever heard because having a CDMA phone would defeat the entire
    point of my video. If have any more incorrect and overall just stupid
    comments, your input is greatly appreciated.

    it should work

    @10salman01 , this most likely will not work. sprint runs off of a cdma
    network while the gophone uses a gsm network. if u already have the
    blackberry, id just buy the $4 atat gophone sim card and get a $15 top up
    card. If it does work youll have yourself a prepaid blackberry, if it
    doesnt work, youll be out $19, no biggie. Hope this helps

    How can I set up my g-mail with a pre-paid sim on the blackberry? Thanks!

  21. compuman0416 says:

    @TheSage1267 SOS means that there is either an error with the sim card or
    with the network. 1. Try rebooting the phone. 2. Try reinstalling the sim
    card. 3. Go online and make sure you have the correct go phone plan. 4.
    Make sure the sim works in another phone. 5. Call AT&T and have them try
    and fix it with the go phone. Hope that helps- Message me if it doesnt.

    @compuman0416 CDMA and EVDO are superior to GSM/GPRS. WTF am I on about?
    I’m in the UK. The only service we have is the Amazon Kindle’s Whispernet
    but I can hack it to get FREE 3G service. It’s £111 for the Kindle keyboard
    though

    @khalidamin53 as long as its a prepaid account and you buy data phone and
    text everything should work and the blackberry needs to be gsm
