    You're better off just purchasing a Rogers branded one and unlocking that, it'll work with 3G.

    it is possible but 3G will NOT work, you will be force to use 2G so just wait for it or get one from Rogers!

    Should work but minus 3G. Get a Rogers as already said. No compromise there.

    the 9930 is CDMA.

    AT&T uses GSM.

    to my knowledge, no, the 9930 will not work on AT&T.

    If I remember correctly, the 9930 is a world phone.
    It has a SIM card slot (usually for international use) so you could unlock it and use it on AT&T/T-Mobile but you would only get EDGE.

    Yes but wouldn't be worth it since it'd only be 2G. As others said get a Rogers one if you want 3G/4G.

    This is BS. Tons of people are selling the Rogers 9900 in Manhattan for $950 USD+

    I should fly to Canada this weekend and buy a ton of 9900's and under cut all of these guys. Sell them for $600 shipped.

    What a rip off.

    Rip off? I paid $950 for mine in Manhattan and I love it.

    Firstly, look at the forum even people in Canada are having a hard time getting the device. The stores are not selling Rogers devices without a contract. Plus you are forgetting the high sales tax upto 13% in some areas. That plus the hassle of travelling up, airfare or gas etc.

    Good luck getting one at $600. I'd buy 5 from you at that price in Manhattan right now.
    Geese thats hardcore, $950 for a phone that is gonna sell here in the states for $509 full retail on monday? You are truly a crackberry addict!

    Sounds like he's on AT&T, so not Monday for him. Probably could have done better than $950 though haha

    Dude stop spreading bad information.

    You are obviously 100% wrong. The VZW is a world phone and will work on 2G with ATT.

    OMG, if you don't know something, just BE QUIET instead of spreading misinformation.

    I live in LA and travel up to Vancouver every 3 weeks, I am going up the week after next... August 25. If anyone is interested I can pick one up for you for the price that Rogers is selling at, no mark up or any crap. Just pm me so we can work out the details.
