Thanks for the info.
Yes, I know, but I plan to put in a Boost mobile sim card (since everyone around his age here has a Boost phone). I'm not to particular about the BB part. It was just a cheap, but decent 1st phone for him. Boost quit making their throw-away phones, so this one will suffice.
Besides, I can now hold my head high and say I'm the proud owner or 2 BB's.
