Default Reason I envy other carriers..

Please Login to Remove!

I wait tables down at the Oceanfront where I stay.. For some reason EVERYONE seems to have the new Curve offered by T-Mobile, I believe the "Javelin" as labeled on here? Anyway, I'm sitting looking at my 8330 with dust stuck under the screen and I'm thinking," Man, I'm tryin' get a new Blackberry for Alltel with the new interface and all that good stuff."

So basically, I can't get to the bottom of this researching of new BB's coming to Alltel, so... If anyone has any information to share on new upcoming or rumored Blackberry's I would much appreciate it.

Thanks a lot, and thanks for having me on the forums!

Alltel is not releasing anything else. All further devices will be for Verizon. Check out the 9630.

I feel your pain since I'm with Sprint and they seem to get everything last.

It is a curse that plagues all us CDMA users.. It is the price we pay for a faster network!

For once, T-Mobile got an enviable device first. Let 'em enjoy it.

I use T-Mobile but I work for AT&T. You notice things.

<Grins>. Grass is always greener on the other side...

I'm on T-Mobile , waiting for a little Bold or Storm love, with no signs of that happening anytime soon.

Tempted to live on the bleeding edge and shop e-bay...

good question. CDMA users do get devices later. but on the benefit, all the bugs are usually worked out and their networks TEND to be a bit faster

Nope. Your phone is associated with your mobile number on your account with your carrier if you are on CDMA. The phone's inherent ESN number is paired with your mobile number.

alltel will officially come under the verzion name this year. All Alltel users will have to resign as a verizon customer and many will have to change their phones. If you are looking for a new BB then look at the verizon line.

Within North America, you can use the Storm and the upcoming Tour on GSM carriers. Outside of North America, you can use those as well as the 8830.
