You'll only be able to use your unlocked BlackBerry on GSM carriers T-Mobile and AT&T. Verizon is CDMA and doesn't use SIM cards.

GSM carries T-Mobile and AT&T. It means no contract right? I don't want contract. Thank You :smileyhappy:

GSM and CDMA are two different cellular technologies. Yes, you can get a SIM card from either AT&T or T-Mo and use your BlackBerry with no contract. Your service will just be through that carrier, not Verizon.

 

You'd only have to sign a contract if you wanted to upgrade and get a discounted phone.
