Did you mean: 
Give us the Blackberry 6 please!

Been a blackberry user since the first ever blackberry and the thought of upgrading my device to anything other than the blackberry 6 is just unacceptable! Does anyone know if Verizon will ever pick it up and offer the wonderous phone to all of its loyal customers!:smileywink: If not, here is the forum question:

 

Is it possible to buy an unlocked Blackberry 6 and use my verizon sim and still get all the perks and benefits from Verizon such as customer support or is there no chance? (also is that illegal?)

 

Thank you for any help,

John

You will have to upgrade your device to utilize Blackberry OS 6.  The only current Verizon Blackberry phones capable of using this Operating System are the Bold 9650 and the Curve 9330.

You may want to wait before upgrading as there are a new line of Blackberry phones due to release in the late summer which will be running the new Blackberry Operating System 7.  I recommend you go to www.blackberry.com for more details.

Are you wanting a BlackBerry device with OS 6? Or OS 6 on your Tour?

I would look at installing BBTweaks.com hybrid 9630 -  v975.6.0 on your Tour. I found it faster than the stock Verizon OS on the 9650.
