    CDMA BlackBerry's DATA features in a GSM area?

    Advertisement



    The Global BlackBerry Data for me is the #1 reason I'll give up my 8703e & get the 8830 from Verizon as I -

    1. Need a North America (US & Canada) Voice Plan
    2. Need instant (push) Global data access for my e-mails etc. without having to rely on a laptop, which stays plugged in my hotel/conference room.

    Not having global voice at a cheaper rate does not bother me, as my voice calls while outside North America are minimal - family calls me at my hotel & if it's an emergency, then I sure don't want folks to mess with multiple phone numbers.

    Here's my question though -
    If my regular old 8703e is optioned with the Global BlackBerry Data plan, will I be able to access BlackBerry DATA in GSM areas of Europe/Asia (even though I cannot access voice)?
    Anyone used e-mails/data/PIN messaging on their Verizon BB in a purely GSM area?
    Thx.

    Not with an 8703e you won't. It doesn't support any GSM frequencies.

    If in doubt, you can always visit Blackberry.com for device specs.

    Got it; brain forgot that BlackBerry data was dependant on cellular carriers as well ;-)
