Can I use an unlocked Blackberry Pearl Flip on AT&T's service?

I'm considering buying an unlocked Blackberry Pearl Flip phone from a website. But, I need to prove to a few people the phone will work on AT&T's service. I know both phones are GSM, but I just need confirmation.

Optionally, if anyone knows any places to buy unlocked cell phones that they deem reputable, I'd love to hear them. I already know where I'm going to buy, but there are always alternatives.

If it's GSM and it's definitely unlocked, it should work fine. I've used unlocked phones on GSM networks with no trouble.

Should work. Its a quad-band phone, so even if it was sold in the European or Asian market it should work ehre.

Just a side note, if you can find a locked phone for significantly cheaper, I'd go that route. Reputable retailers on eBay can sell you the unlock code for $10 or $20 and unlocking it yourself is very simple.

I unlocked my 8800 for $10.
