    unlocked pearl

    Advertisement



    i currently do not have a blackberry but would like to get the pearl. i have had horrible experiences with tmobile in the past so i refuse to switch to them (from verizon). i was going to wait til cingular released the pearl but i'm getting rather antsy and really need to get rid of my verizon phone.

    does anyone have any experiences with an unlocked pearl (or other bb)? any opinions on cingular and their bb service?

    thanks.

    Hi have never had a Cingular BB, so I cant be much help. Here is the Cingular Thread to look through and see what you think.

    As for unlocking BB's, Im on the iDEN network so I dont have the ability to do so, Im sure other stackers will be able to help you though.

    iswise, Welcome to PinStack. I haven't used an unlocked BB on Cingular, but I know that many have done so successfully. I have even read here of Stackers that are doing it with the Pearl. If you're willing to switch to Cingular just for the Pearl, then I say don't hesitate.

    i had tmobile for 9 days with a sidekick3 and the signal was absolutely horrible. nearly every time i went indoors i would have no signal at all.

    yes their prices are great, but the primary reason i have my phone is to make and recieve calls. sometimes you get what you pay for.

    Iwise, I have a friend who used a SK3 with T-Mobile and had horrible reception at his house and other places throughout the area. Yet, he switched to a BB and doesn't have any issues with reception on T-Mobile. I'm not sure if this will be the case with you or not.

    Re: unlocked pearl

    cell service is all dependant on where you live. i used to be a cellular rep for omnipoint/voicestream/t-mobile (all the same company). i never had any problems with service. in my later years in cellular services i was a cell dealer. i would say that verizon has the best over all coverage, but in my area tmobile works the best. cingular is terrible and sprint/nextel is a joke. so it all depends where you live.
    Cellular Customer Service = Useless

    The sidekick 3 Is known for their horrible reception... The BB are much better. You should try t-mobile, they have a 14 day trial period. You could even find one for free if you're a new customer!

    you need to obtain the unlock code from the specific branded phone OR pay to have someone give you the unlock code...
