    Hey all,

    I recently upgraded to the Curve 8900 and I want to give my old Pearl to my mother so she can (finally!) send texts. She on a fixed income and won't buy a new phone (contracts not up) and I'm sad to say I can't afford to buy her one right now either. Problem is, she's with Sprint and my Pearl is on T-Mobile. Is there a way to put her Sprint sim card in my old Pearl and "unlock" it for use on Sprint's network? If so, how is this done?

    Thanks in advance.

    Your problem is T-Mo is GSM and Sprint is CDMA. Call Sprint to verify whether they have any GSM service in her area, but I doubt it will work.

    Sprint does not use 'sim cards' I know I've asked multiple times.... other than that there is as the other post suggests the CDMA/GSM issues
