Default Help with 8707g

Please Login to Remove!

I just won an 8707g from my bank and after I received it I discovered there was no sim card. Is that the way they come? Also I want to use this with my current carrier which is Sprint. Is that possible? Any help would be great. Thanks

Welcome to BB Forums.

You can not use the 8707 with Sprint. It is a GSM/3G phone, not compatible with Sprint's CDMA.

Unless they gave you a device with a contract, then yes it will come with a SIM card -- otherwise, NO. As what NJ said, this device is quad band so that's good. Just sell it and get yourself a device for Sprint.
