Blackberry Messenger help needed
I have a bold on ATT my friend has a verizon curve. my friend is traveling internationally for a week. they have not turned on their phone. i have been sending them BBM messages the entire week. when they turn on their phone tomorrow night (they are still international but got the international plan) will all of my old messages be delivered to their phone?

In theory yes. Because like text messages sit in I guess a queue until the device is turned back on. So as long as PINs are correct and there wasnt some "lost over the air" messages that some providers have once in awhile the messages should be recieved.

i doubt they are going to be in a country that offers CDMA service. therefore, when they turn on their phone overseas, it wont even work (no cell coverage). this is all assuming they have the curve 8330. which country is your friend in?
gotta love the limitations of CDMA.

if they are traveling in mexico or the bahamas, that has native CDMA coverage, they will most likely get the messages. this is due to those providers having roaming agreements with Verizon.
this is why i asked you, where is your friend?? that will make the difference on if it will work or not.

i think israel has native CDMA coverage too actually. its a primarily GSM country, but i think they have a small CDMA footprint. but i dont know if verizon has a roaming agreement with them or even if a verizon phone would detect/connect to it.
according to this website (i dont know how accurate it is), it looks like they have a limited 800mhz 3G CDMA network that covers tel-aviv, and a nationwide 1x 800mhz coverage. but im sure its a pain to get it to connect, if it will at all. the GSM network will be more extensive and will be most likely 900mhz with some 1800.
