    I have an unlocked US Cellular Blackberry 8830 and had Verizon download their database on it. Now I have switched to AT&T and want to use this phone still. Is it possible to get their database downloaded to this phone and if so where could download it where can I find it? If someone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. Thanks for the help!!

    There is no At&t software for the 8830. At&t does not have the 8830. The 8830 is a CDMA carrier device while At&t is GSM.

    Regrettably it will never work. Your phone is a CDMA device and will therefore only ever work on CDMA networks such as Verizon.

    It will never work on Sprint. Sprint will NOT activate a non Sprint branded phone onto their network.
