Default questions about 8830 for verizon

Please Login to Remove!

hi everyone,

i am new to this forum, and i just got a verizon 8830 world edition blackberry. Before, i had a treo 700W which gave me problems but there are a couple of functions on the treo that i wonder if they have for the blackberry.

do any of you guys know a good aim client for this phone?

are there any programs that can make my blackberry into a modem without paying the extra $15 a month?

My last question is that. Since, this phone has a sim card slot, is it the same size as a t-mobile phone? if so, can i get this phone unlocked so, i can stick in a new sim card when i go to asia?

thanks for your help

The best aim client is JiveTalk. Well worth the one time charge for it.

You can't get "tethering" from Verizon without their tethering plan (modem use)

Yes, you can use your TMo sim in it overseas if you get Verizon to unlock it. Your TMo sim won't work in the US though.

This should explain what to do. You can also do a search for "unlock verizon 8830" and you'll pull up lots of threads.
