    Should be able to as long as you unlock the phone

    Adding to what Ronen said, if the BlackBerry is unlocked, it shouldn't matter where you take it, provided your are inserting a GSM-based SIM card. Here in North America, GSM networks use the 900 and 1800 MHz bands, while pretty much the rest of the world uses the 850 and 1900 MHz bands. It's not about the vendor ID of the phone, but the supported bands of the wireless radio in the phone. If your phone is locked to T-Mobile, it won't matter what bands you want to use, as it will only work on T-Mobile. If you unlock your phone (the last time I priced it, it was ~$30), you can use the 9500 on a foreign carrier, provided you had a SIM from that carrier. The 9500 supports GSM 850/900/1800/1900/2100, and Malaysia uses the same bands as the UK (800/1900/2100).

    "answer is can but the push mail can not use. anyone know how to do it???"

    You need a data plan accessible with the SIM card you are using there in Malaysia. If that card only has voice/SMS, you aren't going to get email (or web, or BBM, or whatever) when that card is in the phone.

    And you for sure have to get the phone unlocked first. TMO UK >MAY< do it for free, but if they won't there are abundant third party unlockers available (codes have been give out here in the past, try those guys first).

    Yeah you would definitely need a data plan for it all to work. It also needs to be a BlackBerry data plan so you are provisioned for BIS which is what delivers your email.

    Your mobile can be used in Malaysia….

    Unlock your mobile in UK then you can use the mobile with any operator.Unlocking with codes is one of the easy way to do it.You can use the website wickedunlock.com which has unlocking codes for more than 5000 models.The site provides step by step instructions to make unlock easy.

    Exactly! Data only will not provide the service, it must have BIS service from the cellular provider. Also, if the SIM has never been used with blackberry before, you may have to send your registration email from the handset to get things rolling.
