hi guys i have bussines trip to USA, right now i have bis data plan ... General Blackberry forum
are this steps good before buying a used blackberry ?
hi guys i have bussines trip to USA, right now i have bis data plan in mexico with a 8120 bb...
i would like to buy a used storm2, i already contacted some guy, but i think he does not know anything about unlocking and releasing the pin...
so i think he should do this so i can use it on mexico:
-call verizon for the unlocked code, telling them he is traveling, international simcard from company etc....
-then he need to ask for his pin to be released
am i ok with this?
to activate the storm2 i will need to go via my pc to my bis provider site to change the pin and imei... after that i can plug my sim card on the storm2....
i did my research on the forums and i got this conclusion, i want just to make sure i am following all the steps...
thanks for your help.
Verizon is CDMA and does not use sim cards. So, they wouldn't be able to unlock the phone.
...And the IMEI is international can't change that !Have you considered buying one in Mexico ?
so i just have to plug my sim card on the phone?
my company in mexico is gsm.
in mexico, is too expensive..
Verizon is CDMA - no place to put your GSM card in ! Don't do it !
The storm 2 is an international phone. So as long as it's unlocked and the pin is clear you should be good. I'm have a storm 2 that I use on AT&T so it would work with gsm frequencies.
Hope that helps. Good luck.
good call macallik.....most blackberry's that are cdma (tour, storm, etc.) Have sim cards slots for international travel....
To answer your question that sounds like you'll be good.....not knowing what frequencies are used in mexico, I cannot verify that you'll get 3g, but voice/2g data should work fine.
^^^my apologies. I thought CDMA phones gave no alternative for accepting a GSM card ! I Know that TMN in Europe, as well as ohthers and some enterprise activations, did not grant the choice. Anyway, I would be wary !
