    I've been trying to get an answer to this for a min,is the thunder going to rogers when its released or is vzw just getting it and if it does go to rogers they run on a sim card correct? Which means I can unlock it to at&t correct?

    The answer is yes and no. The thunder\storm is a cdma device and verizon is a cdma carrier. But I have also read that the thunder is going to be a world edition so it will have a sim card slot too. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    YES, the 9500 is going to Rogers. The 9530(CDMA) is going to VZW. So yes, you will be able to buy a 9500, unlock it and it'll work on AT&T.

    Here is a write up I found on another site.

    As believed by many rumors in the past, the device has been officially*named the*BlackBerry 9500.*Also, as*reported in the past, it will launch on Verizon and Vodafone as a lifetime exclusive, operating on both high-speed*HSPA and EV-DO networks (and even a*GSM/EDGE transmitter for sh*ts and giggles).*Now for some new information. The resolution for the touchscreen*will be 360×480. Oddly enough, that’s slightly larger than*the Apple iPhone and Apple iPhone 3G, which is the*even more*apparent*inspiration for taking one extra step up*for the BlackBerry 9500.Oh yeah, last but not least, the BlackBerry Thunder will launch with OS 4.7.0

    Via: http://www.blackberrynews.com/2008/0...y-9500-os-470/

    Cheers ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
