My Device: Curve 8530
My Carrier: Verizon

US to UK BlackBerry

I currently have a BlackBerry Curve 8530, locked, from Verizon and would like to somehow bring it with me to the UK for the next year. I also have a Pay as you Go Vodafone UK SIMcard in another phone, and I would, ideally, like to use that SIM in the BlackBerry but still be able to BBM family home in the States.


I would like to know if a) that's possible, b) how to do it, and c) if I still need to have ties with Verizon for the year through this phone. Any insight is greatly appreciated!
