You have no idea what u are talking about. A Rogers 9810 will work perfectly on Bell's 3G/4G network. Bell's HSPA network and Rogers network run on the same frequency when it comes to 3G/4G. I run my Rogers Bold 9780 on Bell and it works absolutely fine. And no u dont need it to be cdma hard coded in order for it to work, since Bell's HSPA and CDMA network run on 2 totally different frequencies and is basically a whole other network alotogether. fyi the Iphone can only run on Bell`s 3G network, since it doesnt have a cdma antenna or support for one.
The 9700, 9780, Iphone 4, Iphone 3gs, and pretty much all the other android handsets on Bell are GSM only, not cdma, The last fone that bell has that runs on its crippled cdma 3g network was blackberry storm 2.
As for unlocking, google "freemyblackberry" they email u a free code in about 24 hours or u can pay for an instant unlock, however, i do not know if they suppor the new blackberries yet.
edit: I just double checked for u and yes xxx.freemyblackberry.com now supports the new blackberries, free unlock is temporarily 24-48 hours or instant unlock costs anywhere from 3-4 dollars depending on ur MEP

The disadvanatge of using a 9900 on telus or bell is that, their 3g doesnt cover everywhere in all of canada, just look and see if ur region is covered and ur good to go, because i get bell 3g in more places than i even get rogers 2g. eg underground parking and whatnot. If usable, get a 9900 and not a 9930, as bell and telus sell the 9900 and not a 9930. because their hspa network is technically 4G, and u can use data and talk at ther same time on their hspa network. This is not possible on their cdma 3g network, and imho, their cdma (EVDO) network is nowhere near the capabilities of their hspa network. They are trying to remove people from their cdma network now. I'm not even entirely sure u can use a 9930 on bell or telus networks.

Its the transmissions that bolt up to the engines that determine whether or not you may shift gears manually.
