Default Can I use BB Curve without a BB plan on AT&T?

Please Login to Remove!

I'd like to get an answer from some BB experts out there.

I currently have a plan with AT&T for voice and unlimted text and MediaNet data plan. On my Noka phone, I use voice, web, MMS, SMS as well as Google apps.

I like the Blackberry for QWERTY and want to use it as a messaging device and a phone. But I have no use for the BB push mail service. I want to use the BB Curve browser, SMS/MMS for messaging and Google Mail app for mail.

So, if I were to purchase a BB Curve from a 3rd party and insert my current AT&T SIM card, can I use the BB Curve as I described above without paying extra for the BB service? I swap phones all the time and this isn't a problem but I'm expecting there's a bit more to Blackberries because of their BIS.

Does it matter whether I purchase a AT&T locked BB or an unlocked one?
What will I not get? I know voice and SMS will work. But how about MediaNet and MMS?
