    Re: how to unlock 8830 verizon?

    Turns out even if you could get it unlocked the sim card is non removable.Strother said the nonremovable SIM card might be a "warning flag" for potential buyers, as the locking of the handset "means someone using a Verizon BlackBerry 8830 will not be able to swap out a SIM in France, for instance, to take advantage of lower calling rates. Instead, higher international roaming fees will apply, which takes away one of the benefits of GSM."

    Another one of Verizon's how to make a dollar ideas.

    So the sim is not removeable, omg, Sprint has 1 up on Verizon? How do you mean its not removeable, is it really locked in there?

    The phones designed for Verizon and for Sprint are somewhat different in that the Verizon version will not have a removable SIM card, a feature found on virtually all GSM phones which allows SIM card owners to access local GSM networks while abroad for cheaper voice service.

    Re: how to unlock 8830 verizon?

    Is it necessary to call customer service to get the unlock codes? It would seem that is should be possible to publish unlock codes via this or other forums. If Verizon Wireless is providing the information once a call is made to their contact center, why can't we cut out the (very painful) process of calling?

    Call me old fashioned but generating calls to a contact center would seem to be an unecessary expense for Verizon Wireless and a poor example of service to their customers.

    I thought unlock codes had to be device specific to the individual unit not just a general number to unlock all devices otherwise who would pay to unlock their phones when they can just use one someone else has right?

    Not true. I called them from France to unlock my 8830 and they told me that they could not do it while I was out of the country. They left me hanging without a phone or BES service for over a week while I was on a business trip.

    **** You Verizon Wireless!

    That is my point, they can not fix there **** ups while you are overseas and actually need to use the phone. It did me no good to wait until I got back to the US to have them fix it.
