    My wife wants to buy a friends BB Pearl that was on Verison's network. We have T-mobile. Can t-mobile switch this pearl over so it will work on their network?

    Nope, T-mobile is GSM (uses SIM cards) and verixon is CDMA (no SIM cards). The hardware is different. It won't work.

    Your better off getting an 8120 I believe it has wifi which is nice for browsing besides like artemis said won't work. Only devices like storm or 8830 we that are world phones and have gsm radios as well as cdma and use simcards as well would be able to do this. You could always try ebay or craigslist for a used one if u want it cheap just get the imei and pin and make sure they are not on lost stolen list
