    It's been a long while since I've been on these forums, bigger work responsibilities and family obligations will do that to a person! I'm still rocking my Bold 9650 that I started using in 2009 (or 2010, can't remember exactly). I think it's time to upgrade and since I suffer from loyalty issues, yes, I need another Blackberry.

    I'm with Sprint which only offers the Q10 and 9930. While I do love my physical keyboard, I think I'm ready to make the jump to a touch screen keyboard after using my Nook tablet for a few months now. Sprint does not offer the Z10, which I think is the one I really want. Is there any way to make a Z10 work on the Sprint network if I buy an unlocked Z10 directly from the Blackberry website?

    No, is the simple answer. First if all the Z10 for sale on the BBerry site is a 100-3, which is GSM. Sprint is CDMA. But even the Verizon CDMA version (100-4) will not work because Sprint will not allow it on their network. Unless something has changed recently...

    Unfortunately, no. Unlocked refers to GSM phones and Sprint is a CDMA carrier. They will not allow other CDMA carrier's phones on their network, either.

    Well, boo. Good thing I'm not under any contractual obligations with Sprint. If I really want the Z10, I guess I'll have to change carriers. Though I will miss unlimted talk/text/data that I currently have....
