Default about unlocking BB Pearl 8130

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys, I am new to here and to BB. I was wondering whether I could use my AT&T SIM card with a unlocked BB Pearl 8130 (which is originally for Sprint / Verizon, and thus is CDMA but not GSM)?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply!

So the unlocking thing, say, for BB Pearl 8130, is just a matter between Sprint users and Verizon users (coz they both use CDMA)?

Minor problem - they don't normally let phones not sold by them on their networks. Unlocking is a GSM thing; not a CDMA thing.
