Default Rev A

Does this new Verizon system software include Rev A? How can you tell if you are getting Rev A service? How much faster is it?

Verizon and Sprint support Rev A over almost their entire networks. If you use a compatible device you get Rev A speeds automatically.

No Blackberry is compatible with Rev A or upgradable to Rev A. The Pearl 2 uses the MSM6550 chipset, which supports Rel 0 EVDO. The 8830 uses the same MSM6550 chipset.
