It will but you'll need to change your plan to a BlackBerry specific plan (not available on prepaid) to use anything that requires data

Why not instead look for a BlackBerry Q5 which blows that torch out and doesn't need a special plan.

The Q10 is actually a more expensive version of the Q5. It has a metal body, removable battery, and a nicer screen. But the Q5 is very well made for a plasticy phone.

You won't find a lot of sliding keyboard phones these days.

The special plans aren't more expensive but they enable data use and other features like BBM, Email, and the browser.

Out of curiosity, how much was that Torch on Amazon? Keep in mind the phone is already about 4 years old.
