Default I want one.....

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, I'm with Verizon. I want a torch. I've read that Virgin is going to introduce the Torch to their line-up. If I understand correctly, Virgin is a CDMA technology. Can I buy one through Virgin and activiate it on Verizon without giving up any of the obvious goodies?

Thank you!

Verizon doesn't activate Devices from other networks.
Where did you read that Virgin was offering the Torch?

Last I heard, Verizon will not activate unless it's their phone.

They could have meant Virgin Canada.
BlackBerry 9800 Torch to be carried by Bell, Rogers, Telus, Virgin Mobile and Vodafone U.K. Boy Genius Report

The Verizon website has the functionality for users to switch (activate) another phone. I've done it several times between my Storm and my Tour.

The web site let's you change between multiple Verizon branded phones. Not to a phone from another carrier.
