in order for a blackberry to work you need a data plan.. if pre-paids offer data plans i cant see why it wouldnt work....

but i dont know for sure.... the only thing i am 100% about is you NEED a data plan


also the phone should be UNLOCKED

I have a blackberry, and I dont believe you can. You have to pay for the blackberry plan, and I dont believe pre-paid plans include the blackberry plan.  I would probably get him something else since he is on a pre-paid.  There are a lot of other PDA/Smartphones out there.

The phone will work as far as calling someone goes,but all the extras like the enternet and everything else you have to have that on your plan.I would check to see if pre paid has a plan you can use with it.

Yes it can work as a phone, but that is it.  There is no point of getting a blackberry if you cant use it to it's full potential.  You might as well just get a reg. phone instead of spending the money on a blackberry.  That seems kind of silly to carry around two phones...just in case you want to send messages.  No sense in getting a blackberry.  JMO.
