    That won't work either. You can't use Sprint's BB10 phones on Verizon, or vice versa.

    Are you looking to sell the Z30?

    I figured I could since they're both cdma and unlocked, but good thing I asked.

    For sure. Unlocked actually refers to the GSM side of the Verizon phones. So you can take the Z30 and Z10 over to AT&T or TMO, and use them with varying degrees of compatibility.

    But you can't use them on CDMA carriers they weren't made for.

    Sprint doesn't have much support for BlackBerry. Phones from other carriers don't work on sprint. If you want to have 2 sprint phones and switch between them it is a PAIN because you have to do an ESN swap.

    After 15 years with them I switched to ATT for the passport. Have been very pleased with ATT customer service and their network. Have had 4GLTE pretty much everywhere I've been. Can't say that for Sprints network. Also our bill is cheaper on ATT.

    I have an excellent condition Sprint Q10 and a like new Sprint Bold 9930 I'd sell :-)

    An ESN swap can be done online easily.

    You must have cut your data by quite a bit if your bill is cheaper on att.

    Hi admorris,
    Actually we have the 30gb plan with att and with their new rollover data policy we end up with about 50GB available every month. We were on an old sprint family plan with unlimited data so when we switched I wasn't sure what we'd need. Ended up with their highest GB data plan. Still cheaper than what we were paying with Sprint.

    If Sprint would have offered the Z30 when it came out we would have both gotten them and may not have switched. The Z30 is an awesome phone. It's a shame they didn't carry it. We chose ATT due to their better voice coverage throughout the US as my hubby travels extensively for his job. He uses his phone for talk, email and text which BlackBerry excels at.

    I am not sure if it's the BlackBerry OS or the antennas but the Z30 will have better voice signal than his co workers, some of whom are in the same location with an ATT iPhone. Very happy with the Z30. If i hadn't of paid so much for the passport I'd probably buy me one too!
