No you cannot use the 8330 on AT&T, the 8330 is for CDMA networks, AT&T uses the GSM network. Out the box you can use the 8300 and the 8310 on AT&T's network, unlocked you can use the 8320 on AT&T.

Angry hello

It looks like no one has responded to you since may. Dont know if you will read this but I had Verizon a while ago, and it had no sim cards. They dont even make a slot for them in their phones. So unfortunately, you cannot use your sim card in verizon or sprint phones. Only in T-mobile or ATT phones. I actually have a Tmobile phone now and I use ATT. Sprint and Verizon have the new Blackberry 8330 and I REALLY want one, but unfortunately again, cannot put my sim card in their phones.

The 8830 and 8330 both have SIM cards as they are GSM outside North America as they do not have our GSM freqs. They both run on CDMA in North America.

Incorrect.
The 8330 does not have any GSM capabilities at all. No SIM card.
It is not a World Phone like the 8830.

Really? I guess you missed the part where dwp1975 correctly answered the OP's question 10 minutes after it was posted.

I think what he was meaning to say was, there had been no posts in the thread since May. Observing the fact that he was resurrecting an old thread.
