Question about unlocked phones

Can I buy an unlocked Blackberry phone from ebay and use it with my Nextel service? I don't know a lot about unlocked phones, so I have lots of questions.

Blackerry phones are GSM phones and Nextel uses an iDEN netowrk. Will that matter if I buy an unlocked Blackberry?
Is an unlocked phone something the Nextel will think I shouldn't have? I ask this because I am currently on a voice plan. If I were to get a new unlocked phone, I would want to call them and change/add a data plan to my new phone.

Thanks to all who answer my questions.

Unlocking phones is NOT illegal, but you should look at what services Nextel has to offer for that phone.

My suggestion is to try and stay clear of e bay and fones from there.

People have found them to be blocked , cheap copies or stolen.

Be very wary

Yes, when a phone is unlocked, it means it can be used on any network with a sim card. BUT.... All features may not be available on every network so beware
