    Default o2 (UK) sim in a Bell (Canada) phone

    I'm sure this is going to sound ridiculous as I have received a text, but it goes against everything I've heard before.....

    I moved to Canada from the UK and was told my UK 9900 wouldn't work on most carriers over here.
    I bought a BB 9360 from Bell Mobility as I needed (well, wanted) to have a phone that would work....

    I since found a carrier (WIND) who I could use my 9900 with so I did that.

    I've now unlocked the 9360 and put my o2 sim in out of curiousity and received some texts (it's been 5 months I haven't used it), although it is 'piggy-backing' on Rogers network whilst roaming.
    On this basis, does this mean I can use the 9360 with my o2 sim, on the o2 network if/when I visit home??

    I thought o2 was GSM & Bell was CDMA so I wouldn't receive any reception....
    Can anybody shed any light on this for me??

    Thanks in advance.

    yes you can use your o2 sim card on your bell phone when you visit back home 100%

    o2 and bell both are gsm.
