    This may be a stupid question but, is there any way to make a bb that has a SIM card (GSM) work on another network (CDMA)?

    No. You can't use a GSM phone on a CDMA network, or vice versa. CDMA doesn't use SIM cards either. Take it from me though, unless you need Verizon or Sprint for a specific reason (coverage, speed) then stay with a GSM carrier. After switching from T-mobile to Sprint I realized how much I loved my GSM carrier....ease of phone swap, phone selection, contact entry, price, etc. etc.

    Hello wampa, welcome to pinstack. It is sadly true, gsm on gsm, iDEN on iDEN, cdma on cdma... It would be great if we could all interchange.

    Re: Switching networks

    I'm new to all the different types of networks for cells. Does anyone know of a great tutorial out there that covers this topic? I tried google but I couldn't find anything without massive acronyms that I still don't know...
