SIM Card Question


I have a blackberry with a SIM card that has a blackberry plan. My question is, if I get an unlocked android or iphone 3GS would i be able to switch my SIM card into the new phone and still be able to use texting, calling, and social applications like facebook and twitter ?

You'd be able to change your SIM Card to those phones if it fits but the newer iPhones you'd need a new SIM Card because the iPhone 4 uses a Micro SIM and the iPhone 5 uses a Nano SIM. Some Android phones use Micro SIM also. You would also have to get the Non BlackBerry version of a plan. - KID ANDROID, ( Team.Android.Canada)

However, if you have a BB-specific add-on like BB Social, for example, it won't be compatible with a non Blackberry device. If you wanted data on a non Blackberry device that you are switching to, you would have to either... 1. Use the pay-per-use data saver automatically included in Koodo's new rate plans. 2. Add either data light or heavy to a grandfathered plan. 3. Switch to one of the double talk and data promos (my personal recommendation).
