View Full Version : Transfer 8830 to my wife - How do I do it?

I have a Verizon 8830 World Edition phone. My company switched me to AT&T and gave me a Bold. My wife and I went to Verizon and they told me that the only way they could switch her to my old 8830 is for her to get the Blackberry plan. She has no need for that, but she would like to use the phone for the full keyboard to text with.

Is there a way I can program the phone myself to switch it to her so that she has the same service features she currently has on her existing phone (phone and text)?

Thanks ahead...

Only the carrier can change the phone.

Nothing you can do, sorry. Verizon requires a BB data plan on all Blackberry devices.

Verizon is rigid. She can otherwise us it as a paper weight.
