The 8830 is a dual-mode CDMA/GSM phone. It's picking up a CDMA signal, probably from Telus, Bell, or whatever Mobility carrier serves your part of Canada.

You should be able to set it to GSM-only...

VZW BIS also semi-functional here in Seattle. Can't load web pages. Apps which use BIS connectivity fail - work fine when switched to direct TCP.

Email is working though.

My Verizon BB8830 works fine with my Cradlepoint CTR350 and MBR1000. I assume that the PHS300 would be similar, but I don't own one to try it. In case it matters, the BB is running 4.2.2.196

The VZW Canadian data roaming pricing is quite reasonable though. $2.05/MB.

(unlike AT&T/Cingular, for example, which is almost an order of magnitude more expensive)

The 8830 has the trackball, GSM 900/1800 for international travel, and Bluetooth DUN.

If you don't need or want any of those, then the 8703e is a fine choice.

The E61 actually just uses EDGE on Cingular because it doesn't support UMTS 1900. If you are in 3G mode then you'll see a little 3G near the signal meter.
