    I am really interested in a Dtek50 as I want to try the BB take on Android. The Priv obviously is supported by VZW but not interested. My only choices here are US Cellular or VZW. At&t has no coverage. If a VZW sim is installed in a unlocked Dtek50 what happens? Does the sim basically control how the phone works on their network? Do all phones (US versions) have all the radios or frequencies to run on most all carrier networks with the carrier sim doing the final connectivity thing?

    Has anyone had a carrier try to put in a sim to see if a non-supported phone would work? I would understand without testing some things might not work (or as well) on that carrier. Just curious.

    Verizon is CDMA, so it won't work there.

    But any GSM carrier would be perfectly fine.

    Thanks conite. I thought for some reason many phones came with both GSM and CDMA frequencies.

    Conite there is rumor that the mercury is coming to vzw. Would that phone be built with both GSM and CDMA so could work with both depending on carrier sim?
