Please Login to Remove!

Ok I now have the opportunity to purchase an unlocked storm that was recently used with the telus network in Canada.... would this phone be compatible with the Virgin network in Canada?

Well, Bell owns Virgin and they share a network with Telus so the hardware should be compatible. Safest bet is to call them with the imei to make sure it's not blocked or anything.

I had a customer like that, the Storm she bought was stolen and we couldn't set it up for her.

Best of luck! I might be picking one up soon as well.

It's under my understanding that Virgin supports BlackBerrys now as well, I saw them selling the 8530 in the mall yesterday.

Best of luck!

ya they do... Both CDMA and GSM services, but the only phones they have right now that are for the GSM are the iphone and the BB Bold... so I am very nervous about seeing if the Storm will work... all the other BB models they have are CDMA lol

I'm guessing no service books for that model.
