    Is there any way to unlock my old TMobile BB 8320 for the Verizon network? The Verizon salesman said no because TMobile and AT&T run on GSM Network and Verizon and Sprint both run on CDMA.. He said because of this, Verizon can only take unlocked phones from Sprint.. but I have heard rumors otherwise.. does anyone know if this is true or not?

    Verizon can't use Sprint phones. Well..they CAN..in theory..but good luck getting them to activate it. They don't like doing that.

    You can't use a Verizon phone on t-Mobile or vice versa.

    Your rep was kinda right: GSM phones can't work on Verizon or Sprint, which are CDMA networks. But while Verizon and Sprint phones would technically be compatible, neither carrier will unlock the others' branded phones.

    To the op's question. No. and the reps are correct. Tmo is gsm and vz is cdma. You can't put a gsm device on a cdma carrier. Completely different technologies.
