Default black berry limited time offer?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

Do any of you know about blackberryoffer.com? Is it real? On another forum people were saying it actually worked. I guess it's a raffle and they do give some away? anyone know?

No clue, get a decent used 8310 and port it. Or an 8330, now that I think about it. Need to try one, wifi would be nice too.

What about it? Until someone markets a netbook with full voice capabilities, these are all stop-gap solutions to me. BB's, Iphones, etc. 8330 will do everything I need it to do, it's cheap, and, I can port it for T-mo, and *not* get screwed in the process. I really like that last benefit. Its a question of hardware and technology that I can access and use.

BTW, I don't have 3G where I live, and, there are no current plans for Tmo to implement it, so that is an irrelevant option.

What do you mean you can port it to T-Mobile. If you mean you can port your number from your 8330 to T-Mobile, sure can. However, you can NOT use the 8330 on T-Mobile's network. It will not operate on GSM frequencies as it is strictly a CDMA device.

The 8330 will not work with T-Mobile. It will only work for a CDMA carrier such as Sprint or Verizon.
