    Hi, I would like to know if unlocking my 8350i would allow me to use it in Europe. I'd like to make sure, since Nextel uses a different network (iDEN) than most carriers, which is why I'm not so sure if I should unlock it to use with, say, Orange in France.

    Or should I buy an unlocked Blackberry (8330 or any one that uses the networks commonly used in Europe) and then put an Orange SIM card in it?

    I know it's kind of confusing, but I'd really appreciate your help, thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately you will not be able to use it in Europe even if you unlock it. The 8330 wouldn't work either because it's a CDMA phone only.

    You can get an 8310, 8320, 8520, 9000, 9700, 8100 etc..
