Default Using Verizon or Sprint BB on Alltel?

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to activate a Verizon or Sprint BB on Alltel? I know Alltel lets you activate Verizon phones because I used to have a Verizon RAZR which I flashed to Alltel and Alltel activated it just fine for me. Can I do that with the BB?

The 8830 has CDMA and GSM capability. Call and ask. The worst they can say is No.

Sprint, Verizon and Alltel are all CDMA. I have read that Sprint and Verizon do not allow other devices on their networks. I am not sure how Alltel works with this. You may want to contact them and ask them.

So just call up Alltel and ask them if I can use a Verizon or Sprint BB (I would get the Curve) on Alltel?
