Default Can I use an American T-Mobile bb pearl 8100 with the Canadian Bell Network?

Please Login to Remove!

I purchased a bb pearl 8100 from a store in Canada. I went to my cell phone provider and when they went to insert a SIM card it asked for a PUK number. I have called T-Mobile and they were unable to help me. When I called RIM it charges you for their technical support. So I guess all I am wondering is if I can in fact use a T-Mobile phone on the Bell Network, and what the HECK a PUK code is and how to get it. Thanks!

You need to obtain an unlock code and unlock the phone.



See http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.php/BlackBerry_FAQ for more info.

Don't double post.

8100 will not work on Bell's network.
