Is your new network CDMA or GSM? Let's start there. And was it used on verizon, or brand new?

First.. if it's a 8830.. you wont be able to use it in canada.. the GSM band are not the same, and Bell or Telus wont activate it on their network.

If you unlocked it from verizon, its a CDMA phone. So in order to use the phone at all in Canada, you need to be on Bell or Telus. If you are on Bell or Telus, i would think that the data would work. I dont see why it wouldnt
