Hey all, am thinkin bout buyin a blackberry curve phone tomorrow and getting it unlocked here, but nobody in the shop seems to know if when i go to oz and put in aussie sim if il have all the same internet features like bbm and whatever else blackberry has. Has anybody brought their blackberry to oz and do all the internet setting work over there?!

I would have thought you would only get bbm and other such features if you signed up for a data plan in Australia, otherwise just the basic features like calling and texting would work. As you are unlikely to be able to sign up for a contract there if you are not a resident, I think you will have to stick to a basic prepay sim which will not allow data.

You can get blackberry on prepaid over in Sydney and it should work with that phone. the network is called crazyjohns. they have a website. they are the only company in Australia that do blackberry on pre paid. I am using an English blackberry which was on O2 on this network and it works fine. :-)
