Default using VZW 8330 bb in Hong Kong

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I have a BB 8330. Is there any way to have data service in Hong Kong? The only thing which is working is SMS. BBM doesnt work. If you should have any suggestions or information, it would be appreciated. Thanks

Perhaps Verizon's international data roaming would get you your email/BBM/web. Unfortunately, Hong Kong is mostly GSM and your BB is not a "world phone". It's missing the GSM slot for a SIM card like the 8830 and 9630. Hutchinson has a CDMA network in HK so you might want to check them out for roaming.
