Default CMDA to GSm Conversion

Please Login to Remove!

I recently upgraded my 8800 to a Storm and i wanted to use my 8800 as my work phone just my work uses GSM and my 8800 is CDMA.

The 8800 does support CDMA but when i select GSM under the connection manager is just sits there trying to find a signal.. other people at work have the 8800 on GSm and it works fine..

I was wondering if there was a way for me to make this work ? I was thinking of loading the GSM's carriers OS on the phone and trying that

What do you think ?

The BlackBerry 8800 is GSM only.
The 8830 supports CDMA and GSM, but GSM will only work outside of North America.

So.. Which model BlackBerry do you have (Options / About will tell you) and where are you located?

The OS can't change the technology of the device. We really need to know the specific models yo u have as NJ posted above.
