    Not familiar with Cellular One but if they are a GSM carrier that offers Blackberry support I beleive you are good to go...

    EDIT
    I see some postings (above) where folks had problems using an 8300 on TMO so you need more research on this one. Looks like you may not get the browser function with the new carrier (Opera may work)

    Sorry I was not more help.

    If it's GSM then yes. I've got an unlocked curve on t-mobile and it works flawlessly!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    i thought there was a diff between GSM and other things. i thought GSM was like verizon (no unlocking and no "switching")...and then there were the "other" phones (att, tmobile) that run off sim cards that. Can be unlocked (CDMA are those the initials i am looking for?)

    Sasha you have it switched, GSM phons has SIM cards which can be unlocked and is used bt AT&T,T-Mo, etc. CDMA is Verizon,Sprint, and there is no unlocking.

    Gotcha! I wasn't sure about what acronymes went with what carriers! LOL!
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?
