    Hi, I just broke my BB Storm and wanted to transfer the SIM card ( VERIZON ) to an older BB 7130c ( initially CINGULAR, now unlocked ). However, in order to register the phone with VERIZON, I need either a MEID or ESN number but neither one can be found on the back/inside of the phone nor via the status menu ( it lists the PIN and IMEI but no MEID or ESN # ).

    Thanks for your help,
    Thomas

    cingular/AT&T are GSM carriers, Verizon is a CDMA carrier. The sim card in the Storm is for traveling only, and will not transfer to a GSM phone. The opposite is true, that you can take a sim card from a GSM carrier phone and use it in the storm. Hate to say it friend, but your 7130c simply won't work with Verizon. This is also the reason you can't find the proper numbers in it, since it doesn't have those numbers... (MEID/ESN is on the Cingular SIM card, not the phone)
