    Tour is not built for 3G GSM in North America. You'll only be able to use EDGE in the US.

    Load the generic service books. Dial ##000000 change to your number. Should be good to go.

    Nope, No GSM 3G goodness in North America. 2100Mhz UMTS/HSPA 3G support applies to European frequencies only. but EDGE works for me with my needs.

    Now if only RIM would make a Dual Sim Bold.....

    What happens when you get a call to your GSM line and your CDMA radio is active, do you get any type of notification. How does BBM work when your rockin both formats? Email?

    I understand that they dont work simultaneously. I just wanted to know if there is any way to know if a call was missed.

    I get nothing, the phone line is essentially off. and honestly never tried BBM, but I would bet it would be fine. My BIS is set up with Bell, and even when running on GSM with AT&T I have email, data with Bell's BIS, so I would assume BBM would be unafected too. I do have a data plan with AT&T, but I just dont utilize it, you can only have 1 active BIS account per pin. Being that BIS is RIM, the data plan is just the routing to RIM, so no worries about charges from using Bell's BIS on AT&T data.

    I understand that they dont work simultaneously. I just wanted to know if there is any way to know if a call was missed.
    nope, not unless you have it on call forwarding....which I will not do because its an international issue for me, but if its 2 USA phone lines....

    So I was able to pop in a ATT SIM and I found out a few things. Tour recognized the ATT SIM immediately, had EDGE, could make calls but not receive them, I could send BBM's and hit the internet and receive emails. Now I have to figure out why I can't make calls. Anyone have any insight?

    so let me get this straight...i can utilize all my data when im on att, thru verizon bis? in other words, my tour is on GSM thru att, I can get all my emails and stuff because the phone is registered under the verizon bis?

    I get nothing, the phone line is essentially off. and honestly never tried BBM, but I would bet it would be fine. My BIS is set up with Bell, and even when running on GSM with AT&T I have email, data with Bell's BIS, so I would assume BBM would be unafected too.

    It would be on att's bis and yes everything would work.
