Default 8830 Worl Edition

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I just lost my cell phone (a Samsung) with Bell and I'm only 5 months in my 3-year contract, so I need a new phone. I was wondering if a Bell Blackberry 8830 World Edition would work with a Bell 3G SIM card? I live in Canada, if that changes anything...
Thanks!

Nope. The 8830 "World" edition uses only two of the GSM frequencies and will not work on a GSM carrier in North America...

Sorry.
