Verizon 8130 on Alltel's Network?
Hey guys, I was hoping to find this thru a search, but after about an hour of searching, I didn't find anything that helped me.

Would there be any issues running an 8130 that was originally a Verizon phone on the Alltel network? The phone was more or less given to me because my 8703e is acting up. I would like to use this phone for many reasons.

I've already had it activated, and I can text / make calls, but it isn't connected to the Blackberry Internet Service.

Any thoughts? I'd hate to have to break my 8703e and pay the insurance to get another one.

An update here...

I installed an Alltel OS that I found on here, and still nothing. I'd rather not have to pay to get my 8703 replaced...

if they let you activate it then you should be able to use it.

the frequencies are the same, however CDMA carriers are not required to unlock their devices for use on other networks. So they almost certainly wont let you activate it.

Well, I am actually using the phone. Data is the only thing I can't get to work. Oh well, it doesn't seem like it's going to work as nicely as I had hoped. I'm probably going to file the claim and get another 8703e.
