Default Verizon BB on AT&T network

Please Login to Remove!

Since I've tried everything under the sun except what works to bring my BB back to life to no avail, I will probably be using a BB from a buddy whose SP was Verizon (his office just switched to AT&T and got a new phone)

When I drop my AT&T SIM in the Verizon BB, should I expect issues or does it make a difference?

Will I have to switch OS?

Unless it is an unlocked BlackBerry Storm, it won't work.

AT&T isn't the same kind of network as Verizon. As was mentioned, the ONLY Verizon device you'll get to work on AT&T here in the states is the Storm.
