Default Will unlocked 7130e (verizon) work with t-mobile?

Please Login to Remove!

Through my company i can get the BB 7130e (verizon) for a cheaper price so i am thinking of buying the 7130e and unlock it and use it with T-mobile service (my current phone provider).

From reading around it seem that verizon is use CDMA while tmobile use GSM. Also read that the 7130e doesnt use SIM card, is this true? I read the "International BlackBerry Compatibility Guide" post and it said that the 7100 series is "BEST UNIVERSAL WORLDPHONES (BOTH DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL)". Now i'm all confused...............seem like the info are contradicting. I guess the final question is will an unlocked 7130e work with Tmobile network?

Thanks.

One of many reasons, T-Mobile uses SIM cards, Verizon doesn't.

You answered your own question GSM & CDMA are not compatible, mainly because they run on different frequenciesxxx8230;
