Hey.
so i fell in my pool a few weeks back with my LG phone and now i'm stuck with it.. i can't talk because the mic broke and some of the keys don't work so i'm really itching for a new phone!
Problem is that i'm BROKE as a joke!

i just had a few questions..

1. I read online that it is fairly cheap to unlock a blackberry and you could even do it for free... seeing as alot of pearls on other providers.. i can buy for cheeper (like lighlty used ones) would it be possible for me to buy one of those unlock it and reactivate it on my plan in verizon..

2. Is the Pearl 3g??

3. If i'm on a family plan and get unlimited data .. and there are 2 blackberry's on the plan do i have to get unlimited data for each one?

Thanks guys..
the help is much appreciated

No, VZW only allows their own equipment on their network.

2. No.
3. You need THE BlackBerry Data Plan for each.

Good luck, and welcome to the BBForums.

In regards to #1, you may be able to find a fairly cheap VZW branded one here in the Buy/Sell/Trade section, or on eBay.

Just ask the seller for the ESN first, and Verizon customer care can look up the ESN to make sure its clean, hasn't been reported stolen or missing.

And verify it is a Verizon branded one.
