Re: SPRINT BLACKBERRY CURVE 8330 QUESTION

Hello and Welcome to the Forums!

 

The easiest way for you to get an answer is to contact Sprint...they may or may not be able enable international roaming for you on that device.

 

Alternatively, you can research the radio capabilities of that model here:

Then check the radio frequencies in use by carriers in the countries you desire to go to. That will tell you if the BB is at all capable of "talking" to those networks. Then you can either activate an international roaming plan with the carrier (if they offer such) or, before you leave, get and use the unlock code from your home carrier and then, upon arrival in the other country, buy a local SIM and use that in your BB.

 

Good luck and let us know!

Re: SPRINT BLACKBERRY CURVE 8330 QUESTION

I would pass on it.  My BB Curve 8330 just quit.  6 days after the warrenty passed.  The keyboard completely froze and there was no help with it.  You cannot do a hard reset.
