Default Rogers BB Bold 9000 on Telus?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm planning on giving my Unlocked BB Bold 9000 to my mom because I want to convert her to make the jump from regular dumbphone to a BB, but she's with Telus and I'm on Rogers.

If it works, then she can finally get on the BB ship and I plan to upgrade to a 9700.

I've read on other sites that it didn't work completely, but I've also read sites where it worked fine. So I wanted to see if I can get more information on it.

Thanks.

I have personally tested an unlocked Rogers Bold 9000 with a Telus SIM. As long as it's properly unlocked, you can get yourself a Telus SIM for $10 from a Telus store and perform the activation.

Just a couple of dumb questions from a NOOB. I just picked up an unlocked Rogers Bold 9000 and put in the SIM card from my Telus 8830. However, the phone doesn't "see" any networks other than Rogers.

Two questions:

1) Is it the SIM card that causes the phone to "see" networks? Or should I be able to see the telus/bell hsdpa network without a functioning SIM card?

2) Should the SIM card from my 8830 work? If not, how do I "activate" the SIM card once I purchase it from telus? From what I can gather from the website it seems as though I have to order a new data plan to activate it. I just want to use my existing voice/data plan but with the new "handset". Am I hooped?

Thanks in advance!
