    Default Another Unlocking Question

    I'm trying to get a blackberry 9790 to work with Wind.

    Will an unlocked rogers blackberry 9790 work with a Wind SIM card?

    I think the answer is a no from googling but I'd just like to be sure since this person I am trying to purchase the phone from says that his does work with Wind and that he's tried it before.

    Thanks!

    It will work, but you will not be able to connect to Roger's 3G or HSPA+ network. You would get EDGE (2G)

    Would 2G be good enough for texting and calling?

    He said he got it from Dubai and that it's a RIM phone.
    He said it works with any carrier xD is that possible?

    I don't believe that is possible.

    2G will be fine for texting and calls.
    If you were told it will work with any carrier, then the phone is network unlocked... which is very possible.

    Okay thanks,

    I'm going to go see the phone later hopefully it does work with WIND like he is saying.
