9800 is a GSM device which can't work on Verizon. However, 9850 is an CDMA/GSM device and will work on Verizon.

Look for a very low purchase price for the 9850 on VZW with a new 2 year contract. Best BB I have ever owned.
THE BITTERNESS OF POOR QUALITY, LINGERS LONG AFTER THE CHEAPNESS OF PRICE, IS SOON FORGOTTEN.
