    If you get an unlocked BB can you keep your same phone #?

    You would need to verify that with the GSM carrier you activate that unlocked phone on.

    CDMA devices do not need to be unlocked & if it isn't a VZW branded CDMA device, it isn't easily going on the VZW network.

    I am not really sure what or why you are asking. You can keep your number when you switch carriers regardless of phone.
    Hey dad you have message I think.

    I'm not switching carriers. I'm simply asking if I were to buy or otherwise acquire an unlocked BB device, to replace my current phone, would I be able to keep the same phone #. As to why I'm asking, it's because I'm not sure and i'd like to find out.

    absolutely you can keep your same number no matter what device you have.... as long as its properly branded, etc. Unlocked has no bearing on the situation

    I am thinking of buying an unlocked BB, its a Verizon phone, unlocked for other carriers. Will I have any problems, issues, with activating the phone on my Verizon account? I have a BB account now, and want to try another phone.

    You shouldn't.
    make sure the PIN is clear on BIS or you won't be able to set up the service books to get email and such.
