    the nextel phone, i am afraid, will not work with cingular. someone with more technical vocabulary can probably explain it better but it has something to do with the network *i think*

    Well, I thought so too, but somebody told me that if I unlock my phone than I can use any network provider ? Would that be true?

    Nextel uses IDEN and T-Mo is a GSM carrier.

    Welcome to the Stacks Carolla. Cingular and Verizon run on 2 different systems. Cingy is GSM and VZ is CMDA and are incompatible with each other. If you call Cingular, they may unlock your BB for you (if you ask nicely ), then you could use it on TMO.

    carolla23, Welcome to PinStack.

    You are going to be out of luck with that particular BB on Cingular or any other US network other than Nextel.
