I have a blackberry that was previously on contract but would like to switch to prepaid. The phone has been paid off. Do I need to buy a new Sim card or can I use the one I have?

Crystal, prepaid and postpaid use different SIM cards, so in your case, you'll need a new prepaid SIM card. They cost $20, but do come with $20 prepaid credits, so in a certain way, the SIM is free :)

Please keep in mind that if your Blackberry is OS 7 or earlier (Curve or Bold 9XXX series), you will be unable to use any data on prepaid.
