Default Switching Providers/Sim Cards

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all,

One of my users have a blackberry 8830 world edition locked with our local phone company (BELL) with a CDMA network.

Id like to know if there would be a way to unlock it to the point where if i go to europe that i can just swap my sim card with a European company that will provide me with data connection so we dont get charged the hefty $50/meg for data transfers.

Anyone know if this is possible or do i need to purchase a GSM unlocked blackberry?

Doesn't matter if you get the device unlocked or not. There's no pre-paid SIM cards that will give you BlackBerry data anyway. All you'd get is phone and SMS service.
