Default 8320 sim card

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, new to the forum, buddy of mine gave me an older 8320 he had laying around with home and car chargers and a spare battery or two but it doesnt have a sim card. Is it possible to get these? If so where? How much? Just contact t-mobile? Can it be used with a different provider like verizon? Or just get rid of it and start from fresh,

SIM cards typically come from a mobile service provider that uses a GSM network. In the US, the major carriers would be TMobile and AT&T.

You would need to contact those carriers and see what type of phone service plan you want to sign up for depending up your needs.

If the device is unlocked (or if you unlock it), then it can be used with other GSM carriers. Be aware that AT&T will require you to have a data plan with a BlackBerry activated on their network.

The device can NOT be used with a CDMA carrier such as Verizon.
