Default Another unlocking question...!

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all,

I tried finding this, but couldn't find the exact issue. I'm also not sure if there are differences between the US and Canada.

I'm in Canada, and currently have a phone that uses a SIM card on the Rogers network. I received a BlackBerry Curve 8330, on the Telus network, as a gift. I gather that the BB uses Micro SIM, and that I could have a Micro SIM made from my SIM for relatively cheap.

Will that be enough, though? Is there an unlocking procedure I can do to ensure that the Rogers card will work, or is there in fact nothing I can do that would make it work?

Thanks a lot for the help!

No, the 8330 is purely CDMA and will not work at all on Rogers, which is GSM. No SIM card at all in the 8330.
