Sorry to thread-jack, but I was given a hand-me-down Verizon 8330 from my sister, and am going to spend the next couple of months in a South American country which happens to have a CDMA network (I've even seen people using imported Verizon-branded phones). I'm just wondering:
1) Any special steps I have to take in order to use the phone on the other network (akin to "SIM unlocking" of GSM phones)?
2) Do I have to register separately with RIM to use Blackberry Messenger?
3) Is there anything else I should know about that I don't (total BB noob)?
Thanks for any and all help
