Hey Jona, 

Yeah, you can get the regular BB features activated at China Mobile (try the bigger ones closer to areas with expats, they'll be more helpful). They call it the "Blackberry Package" or something along those lines. It's pretty simple to get done, but you'll have to register your phone or number first (i'm not sure which 'cause my Chinese is bu hao, but i know they registered something), and to do that you need to have your passport and that card your sim card came in (hopefully you've kept that). 

Hope this helps

The phone company should provide that service. If professionals aren't able to do it, it would be nearly impossible for you to do it yourself. Some smaller chain phone stores may not be able to do it so you would need to find a bigger one with the capabilities to do this. You will also have to see if the store your at deals with blackberries.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
