Does a 3g Sims card make a 2g phone 3g?
Went to the cell phone booth at Walmart today and was told that since walmart only sold 3g Sims cards (AT&T) that this would make all their phones 3g including the Blackberry 8310 Curve.
I don't believe this is true and told them the phone had to be 3g compatible also not just the Sims card. They were still adamant about the 3g cards making all their phones 3g and are telling customers this.
Are they correct in this?

LOL... sorry, apparently Walmart reps are dumber than regular cell phone company reps!!!
3G is hardware in the phone itself, not the SIM card or a software change.

heh, there really should be a part of the login process for this website that involves answering the following question.
"A Customer service representative from your Mobile service provider told you that they are getting a new Blackberry in 3 weeks. Do you....
A. Believe them
B. Listen to them, then check various blog sites when you get home to confirm/deny
C. Immediately stop paying attention and begin thinking about muffins/cupcakes/favored baked good until it appears the CSR in question has ceased speaking"
If you answer anything other than C, you get booted back to the login screen to try again
(Moral of my post? When in doubt, tune it out )

Wal mart told me the same thing. "All our phones for at&t are 3G". Since I know several people with actual 3G service I knew better but I got my bb anyhow. Yeah my sim card is 3G but my phone isn't. Oh well I love my bb anyways.

Wow, that is like the import kids who slap all those stickers on their cars and think they gain like, a lot of horsepower because they have a Nitrous Oxide sticker, or a performance header brand logo somewhere on there.
