Default Blackberry 7250 Advice

Please Login to Remove!

This'll probably sound real elementary but I'm new to Blackberrys & unlocking cell phones.

I've been with T-Mobile for about 4-5 years now and have gone through some phones. I recently just a got a used Blackberry 7250 and I want to unlock it for T-Mobile. I believe it was originally sold by Verizon, so can it be locked? If not, what options do I have?

Also, how can I unlock once I get the IMEI#? Any recommended sites (cheap)?

The 7250 is a CDMA device. T-Mobile has a GSM network. The two are incompatible.
You can't use any Verizon Wireless phone on T-Mobile.
