Question Storm Models

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys, I have a BB Bold, I'm thinking to get a storm, so there are a couple of questions: if there is a real difference among both of them that is worth the change? Also I have seen on ebay storms 9500, 9530 what is the difference

Wirelessly posted (9530; .108 MF231)

The difference is the network accepts tbe model. The 9500 is GSM like ATT or Tmo and the 9530 is CDMA like Verizon, but will work with some minor limitations on a GSM carrier.
Otherwise there is no feature difference.

Is it true that the 9530 only has a 528mhz processor? on wikipedia it shows that both the bold and the storm have a 624 mhz processor but the storm has dual core arm processors. Some video review I saw on crackberry said it was only 528.

I have been able to get my storm working on ATT and Verizon...it has a "3G" option but I don't have a data plan on my ATT phone number so I did not try it. You can select "3G/2G" when selecting GSM as the only network.

You cannot have 3G on ATT with the 9500/9530 Storm. The 3G receiver on those Storm BlackBerrys is for a different 3G bandwidth than ATT offers.
