    Thank you for your quick answer... I was just about to buy this unlocking manual which , obviously , wouldn't have helped. If you could send me a few links to find an unlocked Blackberry, that would be cool. Thank you

I'm sorry to inform you the Verizon and T-Mobile system are different.

They use different kind of data transmission method.

Verzion = CDMA // Does not use SIM card

T-Mobile = GPRS (an version of GSM) // Does use SIM card

They are apple and orange.

There is no code you can use to make the transition because they are different internally.

Google SIM,CDMA, GSM and GPRS if you want more technical information.

An used Blackberry Curve 8330 are still selling for around $140
I will sell it quick before X'mas price drop.

An used unlocked Blackberry Curve 8310 for T-Mobile/AT&T is selling for around $125.

You should backup all the data in your Blackberry with BB Desktop Manager before you wipe the data and sell it.


To sum it up,the two carriers use different technology and the only way is to sell and purchase a different phone.

If you have more question please post it in the comment window and I will follow up.

    The unlocked $125 Blackberry Curve 8310 at eBay Buy it NOW section.

    I used keywords

    T-Mobile Curve


    Click buy it now tab to view selection.


    Read the fine print before purchase.

    email the seller for IMEI / ESN number and verify with T-Mobile before purchase.

How do you download a web browser for Verizon BB9530 now unlocked to AT&T


Hi, let me straight about the meaning of unlocked phone. If your phone already unlocked from verizon network using blackberry storm 9530 unlock code, you can use any sim card on that phone. Which mean you can access data service, internet service or everything else only from your sim card network provider. So if you use an att sim card on your mobile phone, there is no way to download verizon web browser and why you need verizon web browser? Why you just not to use att web browser? If you still insist to download verizon web browser you can replace your att sim card with verizon sim card, then you can download that web browser on your blackberry and what is the point you spend some of your money for blackberry unlock code if you still using verizon sim card?

Friend gave me a blackberry storm from verizon,But I have phone through T-mobile I want to use my T-mobile sim card in the blackberry how do i do that ?


Every BlackBerry has "Subsidy code" or "Sim lock code". To remove BlackBerry subsidy code or sim lock a special Blackberry IMEI Unlock Code is needed. By entering Blackberry Unlock Code on your BlackBerry you can use your Blackberry with any GSM and SIM card around the world. Blackberry Unlocking is simplest way to remove any or carrier restrictions from your Blackberry. Remote IMEI unlocking is the safest and fastest way to unlock a cell phone.i hope this will help you :)Good Luck.

It seems your phone is not completly unlocked, which means your blackberry storm2 9550 unlock code not to good. If you have good blackberry unlock code that will never been happened, try to bring your blackberry phone to your locak mobile repair shop and asking them to doing cable unlock. It will force to remove all code from your phone. Before doing that make sure you already backup your data.
