I was thinking about buying a used curve on ebay for my dad, now a couple questions, he is with telus so will i have to find telus hardware or will any cdma(8330 curve) work. if so will i have to unlock the device if i do not buy it unlocked and will telus accept unlocked devices on their network. thanks very much

You will need to use a Telus device, AFAIK.

If the previous owner is on Telus then you can activate the device on Telus if not you will have to unlock it to use it on other Carriers (of the same Technology, I don't recall if Telus is CDMA or GSM I think CDMA) there is an article in the BBFAQ concerning this so i would give that a look threw).

i no telus is cdma i just wanted to know if i could unlock an 8330 device and put it on their network

CDMA devices are not unlockable (aside from the GSM sides of the 9530 and 8830).

...namely because CDMA devices aren't subsidy locked to begin with (world edition BB's excluded).
