    Hi, just wondering if anyone can help me?

    I currently have a blackberry curve and its a bit dodgy, so im thinking about buying an iphone with some money i have been saving up and some christmas money.

    My contract for the blackberry has about another year i think, so if i buy an iphone can i put the simcard from my blackberry into it and it'll just be the same?

    Hope that makes sense, im not very good at explaining myself

    Will also go into the orange shop when i get a day off work and ask!

    Thankyouu

    As long as the iPhone you buy is either unlocked or on the same network as your BB, then it should work fine. Good choice btw.

    Thats the main thing i need to ask about

    Well I'm pretty sure with BlackBerry, you need normal mobile internet but you also need BlackBerry internet for things like BBM and email, etc. But if you go on websites using the browser on your BB you'll definitely be able to on your iPhone.

    Yes you can do this, I did the same, but you should ring up your network provider (Orange, O2 etc) and inform them that you no longer need the blackberry data package for push email, bbm, app world etc and ask them to take it off and just leave you with bog-standard internet browsing. That'll save you £5 a month!

    Just wondered why you want to get an iphone 3GS ? For the same price you can get the HTC Desire, a massively superior phone, currently rated as best phone out in the world (yes, better than the iphone4 too)
