BlacBerry services are registered with specific networks. If this BlackBerry device is SIM locked to T-Mobile you have to unlock it first.

If it's unlocked you might be able to use the device for voice, SMS but when it comes to data plans you might have problems - even if the device is SIM unlocked it is still registered with another network for BlackBerry data and it may not work when using another SIM card.

The Bold 9700 needs to support 3G on the 850MHz band (aka WCDMA UMTS HSDPA HSPA) to get nationwide coverage on Telecom XT.

The Bold 9700 comes in two variants; one that supports 3G on the 850MHz band and one that supports 3G on the 900MHz band.
