Hello jd123

All Blackberries use Regular sim cards. You will need to buy a regular sim from Rogers which costs $9.99+tax. You CAN use a nano sim card BUT i would not suggest it. It could either get stuck or when trying to take it out, it may brake the little gold connectors.

Re: question

android data will not work on a blackberry, u gotta call rogers and switch your "Data" plan to a "BlackBerry" data plan, preferably of the same data allotment u had before.

Hello jd123

In order to use data on a blackberry, you will need to contact Rogers and have them switch your data from a smartphone data to a blackberry data aka BIS. Blackberries use BIS which is better then regular smartphone data. It compress data which means you are using less data.

So you will need to get that changed to a Blackberry data plan.
