    Boost Mobile to Offer the Blackberry Curve 8330



    Well look at the news to come out of the BGR, it would appear that Boost Mobile is preparing to release the Blackberry Curve 8330. Now while this is not an earth shattering announcement it will be a welcome release for folks who want to be able to feed their Blackberry addiction without having to sign one of those pesky two year deals with the carriers out there. This should be an interesting release as Boost has traditionaly only offered IDEN devices for their customers. This adds to the growing number of CDMA devices they currently have. From the pic we can gather that the device will run you a stiff $249 and will paired with unlimited talk, text, and web for $70 a month. Thats not a bad monthly rate for a contract free plan.

    OFFICIAL: Boost Mobile 8330 5.0.0.438

    This OS is out there so how do we find it?



    so, how do we get our hands on this OS? Boost Mobile is NOT listed on the BlackBerry OS download page.

    That OS has not been released or leaked yet so there is no way to get it.. YET.. merged with existing 8330 to boost thread.

    If its only through DM you will have to wait for someone to dump the java or for them to release it as a downloadable file. We have seen this happen with a few OS's

    If I might ask, does anyone know if you can switch a Verizon 9530 (Storm) or a Verizon 8330 (Curve) to Boost? I know Boost uses the SIM card and the 9530 has a sim card slot. Can you just run the unlock sequence and get a new MEP number from Boost to make the 9530 work?

    Thank you.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe Boost operates on a different frequency.
