Default Is it possible to flash a Verizon Blackberry Curve 8330 CDMA to Boost Mobile?

Please Login to Remove!

A friend is offering to sell me one for 60 dollars, and I would love to ditch my crappy Sanyo Incognito. I know Boost offers the Curve 8330, but it is 200 dollars and I would much rather pay 60. If anyone could tell me if this is possible and point me to the right direction on a proper guide on how to do so, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance!

No it is not possible. You can use a Sprint 8330 however, you will not have BB Messenger or push mail. There are 3rd party apps to replace those. Get one off Ebay, in decent shape, for $50 to $60. Go to Howard Forums Boost Mobile CDMA forum for all the information you need.

Shang Mail replaces the push email. There's really nothing that can replace BBM.

Aren't they cute?
