Verizon 8830 using it abroad
Hello. Please forgive me if this has been covered or should be obvious. I have a Verizon 8830. It has no service at the moment. I am planning to visit Denmark next month. Can I take an unactivated BB and use a local sim card to get service while there? I was given the unlocking code a while back and did in fact unlock it with a borrowed sim card (if this makes a difference). Thank you for any help you can provide!!
I can't imagine why not. The 8830 was designed to go world-wide. As long as it isn't locked to Verizon, I can't see why it wouldn't work.
I was thinking the lack of current service would be an issue when using a local sim card. I saw some posts of people with unlocked phones who had trouble using their phone internationally because they did not set up an international plan with Verizon to transfer from (to a local sim card) before leaving the states. Maybe those problems had additional issues. I will try it and report back.
The question was with an unlocked, unactivated 8830, would it work overseas with a SIM card local to that area. To that extent, yes, it should work.
