    Smile Blackberry 957 - earthlink

    Advertisement



    Hi all, I am a newbie here. I have recently jumped back into the bb world after divorcing from my previous 957 from earthlink. I am now using 8703e on the Verizon Network and a Pearl on the Rogers network. Anyways, my question is that my brother would like to use my 957 (somehow he was able to find it under layers of dust), can anyone suggest a carrier for it?

    Thank you.

    You will not be able to use it. Earthlink was a CDMA MVNO on Sprint, but Sprint will not activate non-Sprint branded equipment. Sorry.

    I once used Skytel. It may or may not be an option. Since your device was Earthlinks, Skytel may not support it. www.skytel.com

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Rogers still offers the mobitex network. You should be able to use the 957 on Rogers, and that will likely offer US roaming.

    Thumbs up Re: Blackberry 957 - earthlink

    All, thank you so much for your help. I found sessionware in CA carries the service, but the cost is high. I will just recommend my brother to sign up with Sprint BB service since he is subscribed to it currently. Thanks again.
