Default Need to Change Blk Berry over to verizon

Please Login to Remove!

I just recently bought a used blackberry and it was orginally on the earthlink network. I use verizon, and was told it would switch over easily when i bought it.

Now verizon is saying that the internet will not work because it was programed for Earthlinks network. Is there anyway to change the routing tables and such so it will work on verizon's network.

I would hate to think i wasted all this money for nothing.

Thanks for any help

Who told you it would work on Verizon's network?

Verizon has been pickly lately by not letting any non-Verizon branded phones on their network. Not sure why, other than they want the phone revenue also.

In any case, I would get a second opinion at Verizon.

From my understanding, Verizon will not allow it on their network. Sorry.
