Default Unlocking an 8330 curve for Africa

Please Login to Remove!

I was wondering if it is possible to unlock the gsm portion of a Telus 8330 curve so that I can use a Nigerian sim card in it while I am overseas and then return to the Telus network once I'm back in Canada. Thanks in advance

No, it's impossible.
The 8330 has no GSM functionality, and no SIM card slot.

8830 and 9530 have a sim use for roaming.
