Default Nextel and TELUS? (BB8703 - Possible Unlock for Nextel?)

Please Login to Remove!

I was viewing the devices on blackberry's site to see what was available for nextel, and landed on TELUS instead. I saw that their network (whoever they are) supports the 7100i, 7520 (nextel phones) as well as the sprint phones 8703, etc.

Does that mean an unlocked 8703 would work on the nextel network, I know that the sprint phones Do have a radio in them as they are the only other phone that works with mobile voice control...

Anyone know about this?

An unlocked 8703e will NOT work on Nextel.
Telus is in Canada. If they support both iDen and CDMA, then they could support all those phones. But under no circumstances can an 8703e (CVDO) work on the Nextel iDen network.
