I have recently purchased this phone. It is well worth it,once you get to work it out it comes out just fine,only few problems i am having is setting up my internet services in australia with my provider,other than that i need to find out how i can load programs when they are in the format of exe,rar or rad. But otherwise i say go for it. Its good phone
Can someone please tell me what is the main difference between BlackBerries and other business phones like Nokia E51 or E71 or any other business serries phone? Email and internet surfing is my major priority. Thanks
i have a gsm card from ecuador but it doesnt fit in the slot. is there another slot that im not aware of? all gsm cards are supposedly the same size.

I have a BB 8830 and my service is with Ntelos from Va. Will this phone work in Europe, I assume I would need sometype of sim card and addtional service?
Boom, 25 Jun 2008Does anyone know if an unlocked 8830 WE will work with Bell data? I can get voice but no data ... moreOnce unlocked by the phone company whom you have bought the phone from, it works on all networks including India and singapore local sim cards(not roaming)
Does anyone know if an unlocked 8830 WE will work with Bell data? I can get voice but no data and BELL seems angry that the phone is ALLTEL and not a BELL brand? I am wondering if they are just being difficult. Thanks

what is the maximum memory that i could install to this phone? is it compatible with 2gb or 4gb?
Yes , U can use it overseas, Europe, Africa, Asia. just take the Sim card out and get a local Sim card and here you go.
Been there done it.
My buddy gave me his blackberry 8830 and took the SIM card out before he did..buti can still make phones calls with the phone and his number shows up...does anyone know how that works?
my understanding blackberry 8830 is compatible with both gsm and CDMA . if it were so , then in countries where there is 3G gsm can be used for data and CDMA has proven to be quite stable for voice and inexpensive when roaming specially in countires like USA , India
This phone is not compatible with American GSM; thus in US the phone works in CDMA. However, when I was in Europe I bought a sim-card of a local mobile service, inserted it into the phone and it was working perfectly.
cdma is right
you cant use gsm when you want
you need a cdma carrier and they provide you with a sim card
so it is useful its up the the user to make the best of it personally this could solve a lot of problems for certain people
by the way blackberry bluetooh to transfer phone books from other devices is horrible and doesnt hardly ever work just type in your self sucks but if you got nothing better to do pay some one else to do it
