Default NEXTEL Blackberry 7520

Please Login to Remove!

I am being told I need to move off this device which I love b/c it's easy, reliable, cheap, I own 10 of them and love the track ball. Do I have the option to unlock and go to verizon or AT&T? I do not use the push to talk feature.

No. If you wish to use a device of that era, please purchase a 7250 for Sprint or Verizon or a 7290 for AT&T or T-Mobile. Please note, however, that none of the 7-series devices will work in the next 2-3 years as 2G networks are phased out, so you should heavily consider a newer device.

NEXTEL devices only run on the NEXTEL network, which is being decommissioned by SPRINT.

Just to clarify, you need to know which 8703 (or any device for that matter) you get. If you get a Verizon branded 8703, it will not work on Sprint's network and vice versa.
