It looks like a Verizon 8830 would work with SIM card, but would like to verify. She currently is with Sprint, but has an 8703, and they want $500 for the 8830. Her contract ends in January.

I'd appreciate any thoughts.
BlackBerry 8830 should work in the British Virgin Islands but I don't see Verizon as a roaming partner. Sprint does have some roaming partners in the BVI.
