Default Bell Mobility SIM in unlocked 8800 in UK?

Please Login to Remove!

Why would anybody want to do this? Well, to save $$

I have a Bell 8330 which obviously cannot be used in UK. I also have an unlocked 8800, which cannot be used with a Bell SIM in Canada.

However, I would like to use the 8800 in the UK with a Bell SIM so I don't need to invest in new hardware for the trip. I am only planning on voice and text message use in UK.

Anybody know if this is possible?

My brain says "yes", but the Bell store wants to sell me a new phone because "it probably won't work".

If yes, then I have to buy a SIM - $5 no biggie.

Then comes the issue of activating the SIM - will it need to be in a phone for this?

Thanks!
