Blackberry question

Long story, will try to be brief.

Managed to get my company Blackberry 8110 squashed by a car while on holiday. Couldn't confess to my boss as I dropped the last one in the loo only 2 months ago sad. So I decided to look on Ebay.

I bid on one advertised as brand new, 8110 model, no network mentioned but when it arrived yesterday it's a different model (8120) and shows the Orange logo when switched on. I'm on Vodaphone.

Contacted the seller who offered £25 refund (to include £5 to unlock the phone).

So my question is, does anyone know if this model is as good as the 8110 and will my Vodaphone sim work?

Difference between the 8110 and the 8120 is the one has WiFi (8120) and the other GPS (8110).
Assuming you can get it unlocked then it should work but you will need to give the new Product ID Number (PIN) to your email provider to make the Push Email work.

Oh and you may need to change the theme to an non-Orange one. e.g. BB Dimension
(Click the Spanner and choose Themes)
