Hi,
Just wondering if anyone can help, I have the option of getting a Blackberry 8330 which is a Sprint phone and I am wondering if anyone knows if it will work on the CDMA network here?

I'm getting this phone for free so I'm curious to know if I can at all get it to work here. 


Thanks

Also remember that BlackBerry are associated with a specific operator - moving your device to another operator may break the connection...

It will never work, I have a sprint 8830 that has been staring at me for the last two years and is utterly useless.

Telecom will not connect imported CDMA phones

The device is GSM network locked as well so totally forget it.


You might be able to transplant the pearl navigator into another phone but that will be about the limit of it's usefulness.
