    Heres the deal, i have a 3G right now, the screen is cracked, and im very excited about upgrading to the new iPhone(HD) when it is inevitably released this summer (We all know its going to happen)..anywhoo, in order to afford the new iPhone (ill be paying full retail since im only a year deep in my contract) ill be selling my 3G. Im sure that craigslist and ebay will be flooded with old iPhones so ill be selling mine earlier to try and squeeze a few extra bucks out of it. So, to hold me over for a month or 2 ill need a replacement phone. Im considering using a BlackBerry so i can still have email and web browsing. My question is can i simply switch my SIM into a BB and have no issues? or do i have to alter my plan in some way? any help is appreciated..

    Thanks!

    As long as it runs on the same 3G bands then yeah it will be a seamless switch.

    Actually, I think you'll have to alter the data plan to a BlackBerry plan in order to use email and normal browsing. I think you have to have BIS access for those.

    Damn, BIS is a drag eh.. I totally forgot about that.
    Might as well just go with a dumbphone, it's only 2 months.

    i know, im dreading the thought of using a phone with no 3G or WiFi and **** browser.....not looking forward to it lol. but i have to sell my iPhone before i can afford the new one...hopefully they have some sort of a price break for ppl who renew only a year into their deals like they did with the 3Gs...

    honestly man, it will be worth the time you spent without the iPhone. I'd say try to sell that thing ASAP for as much as you can. Because not many people want to buy a 3G let alone a 3G with a scratched screen.
