    The 8830 will not work on any North American GSM carrier. It does not have the hardware for it.

    Yes, there is a SIM card slot inside the 8830. However, as bluedragon1971 stated, the 8830 will not work on any North American GSM carrier regardless of SIM. The GSM radio in the 8830 only works on European GSM frequencies. North American GSM frequencies are different and incompatible and there is nothing you can do to change that.
