Re: BlackBerry storm sucks

Tech Department for my Carrier advised me that SIM Card is not needed unless you go out of the Country...Overseas (Canada not included).  Just a little tidbit of information

Hi there!

 

Thank you for that information. But, to clarify for others...it is 100% certain that the SIM is not needed on a VZW BB while it is running on the VZW network. I can personally attest to this fact -- my SIM has been extracted from my Storm for perhaps as long as 6 months...maybe even longer.

 

We are relatively sure that other CDMA carriers also are the same, but I can't recall any specific evidence of such.

 

We also know that GSM carriers indeed require the SIM to be installed.

 

And we also know that, in order to roam onto GSM carriers, a BB that is homed to a CDMA carrier (yet capable of GSM signal) will likewise need the SIM installed.

 

Cheers!

Re: BlackBerry storm sucks

i hope nobody minds if i step in here but i have had the storm since it came out last nov and yes there has been issues with it but by no way is it as bad as people on here make it seem

i still have my storm and within the last year there has been a complete difference from then to no and i am very please with it  i think people are just not used to such a technical piece of equipment they need something basic

i like my storm and i use it for bus and pleasure so kudos to all of you guys on here that help with the tech problems
