Does anyone know if I can buy a blackberry handset and use my 3 sim card in it? Or do I need a specific contract?

You can but you won't get full functionality.

If you get a Blackberry-specific contract then you will be able to use Blackberry Messenger (BBM) and the Blackberry email app, plus the usual phone service, web browsing etc. You will generally pay a bit more for this.

If you get a general contract (make sure you get one with at least some data service) then web browsing and phone service will work but you won't be able to use BBM or the Blackberry email. You could still get to your email using the web browser, it just won't automatically pop-up with a new email message when one comes in.

check with 3 if they do a bb add on. i'm with o2 and they offer a bb bolt on for £5 extra a month.
