    I currently have the blackberry storm and am currently on verizon. I am switching my account to U.S. Cellular. If I get the phone unlocked by contacting verizon and if I add the blackberry package to my U.S. Cellular account, will the storm work on the U.S. Cellular for phone, email, internet, instant message, texting and tethering?

    Thank you so much in advance for your assistance!

    Once the phone is unlocked it will work on any GSM carrier. After your data package and setting up your BIS account you will get all data internet,email etc.

    Am I able to use other GSM networks with my VZW sim card? I have GSM service where I live, but not CDMA. I was hoping I could just use the GSM network while I'm home.

    So i get the blackberry package added after unlocked and go to the BlackBerry Internet Service site for US Cellular site to create my BIS, do i then change my sims cards or to move my phone number or can i take it to u.s. cellular to move the #. (Thank you in advance - this is all new to me)

    Your phone number will be what every your GSM card is. Once you change setting to GSM the Storm is reading that sim card just like it is from your carrier.

    they said you need to be a member for at least 60 days. if not they will not give the code. i say screw it and pay 9.99 to buy the code if you just activated not too long ago.
    hey who did you get to unlock it???

    You have to be Verizon customer for 60 days to get the unlock code or you can buy from unlocking service providers

    Boy I got lucky with the Verizon CS guy. He didn't ask me anything about my account or why I wanted it unlocked. He read the warnings Verizon gives for using other sim cards and thats it. I was done in 3 minutes.

    I am a newbie poster as well and NO I have ZERO affiliation with cell phone unlocking online.com but I did have my verizon 9530 unlocked through them. It took 2 days to get the code as they claimed there was a server issue due to poor weather but they were very nice and gave me a code for a free unlock in the future.

    My Storm 9530 is unlocked and running well on Rogers Wireless in Ont, Canada.
    Hey man... nice to see that yours is running well, hope mine will too.

    Just one question.... Have you or anyone tried a TELUS storm unlocked to work on ROGERS or FIDO? the reason i asked is that telus is having a sale on Storms... $600 CAD brand new locked. Thinking of getting one for my brother.

    Thanks

    I had my Telus Storm unlocked by cellunlock.net for $29.99 (if you use "crackb50" code at checkout, $59.99 if you don't use the code).

    I use my Telus account in 1xEV, and can switch to my Fido account (GSM Edge) in about 5 seconds by switching networks, all done within the phone. You can just leave your Fido sim card in the phone and not worry about it.

    so I finally decided to hop on the crackberry forums. I have a quick noobie question. I called and got my device unlocked lets say I want to give the phone to my gf and report it that I cracked the screen or broke it to verizon since I have insurance id get a new one at a store.would my old phone continue to be working with her since its unlocked?

    im not with vzw but im honestly sure dont think they will cause you have an ESN number that they put under your account..and when you report broken or stolen im thinking they cancel that ESN number and give you a new one..but since its unlocked then maybe? cause shes using it with a different carrier. but honestly im not sure.

    Then everyone would go out of business.

    I unlock BlackBerrys if anyone needs 1 unlocked.
