Blackberry Curve - the key that has the letter P and @ symbol no longer works. Verizon says I would have to buy a new phone. I have had this one for a year. Any ideas.

    Hey, thanks for the advice. When I took off the back there were too many pieces of metal over the keyboards - no white plastic. Thanks for the help. it looks like I'm stuck for another year till my contract is up.

If you are handy, open the phone up. There is a white plastic glued to the board. Use something sharp and GENTLY peel off where the P is. You can also use a regular hair dryer to help losten the glue. When you expose the metal connections under, use an eraser to clean the connectors on both the board and white plastic GENLY. Hopefully it is as simple as that

    Not the back. You need to open the front. In any case, you can ship the phone to me for repair if you like

There is one option to unlock your blackberry if you forgotten that password. Just type any password 10 times and your blackberry curve 8520 unlocked, but you will lose all your previous data after that blackberry unlocked. So make sure you have backup data before you doing that option.

I have the blackberry curve 8530 for sprint and I want to switch it to the verizon network, how can I go about doing this?


You just have to unlock your phone totally and permanently from other networks so you switch to Verizon network. You can do this by purchasing the SPRINT BLACKBERRY CURVE 8530 unlock codes from a SPRINT BLACKBERRY unlock code provider. This way, your phone will be 100% SIM lock free..

The phone should not be locked. Verizon phones will work on Alltels network. Once it is on the Alltel network you just need to update the PRL. Alltel phones use Alltels network and Verizons network so it really should not matter what name is on the phone.
