Default Using 7280 on sprint service.

Please Login to Remove!

I have read alot on here and can't find anything on my model BB with sprint.My mom recently changed jobs and they gave her a new BB. She gave me her old on so I am trying to figure out if I can use it on sprint service before I spend the money to unlock it.


Thanks for the help.

The 7280 will not work on Sprints network. The device is GSM and Sprints network is CDMA.

Get a SIM card from T-Mobile, AT&T, or other GSM carrier. Other than that you have a weak PDA. I would junk it.
