    Will the 9700 work on VZW?

    I just won the Bold 9700 in the one year giveaway here on BBOS. I was going to give the phone to my wife. The only issue is that she and I have Verizon coverage. I'm hearing that the 9700 will not work on the Verizon network. I was wondering if this was correct? I was planning on getting the phone unlocked but I'm not sure if that will make a difference. Please let me know. Thanks.

    In this case it might be better to put the phone on ebay and get enough to buy a cdma phone like the Tour for her. One piece of advice though. Before you sell it get it unlocked. It will help the selling price.

    Sometimes if your lucky it significantly raises the price of it (An extra 60-80 dollars - at least in my experience), that's how much influence having an unlocked phone has compared to a normal one.. Just to emphasize getting it unlocked

    or... here is an idea.

    Switch to AT&T.


    9700 Owns the Tour
    and
    AT&T owns Verizon

    Sounds like a smart move to me!

    Can I not sell it here on this forum? If so, where do I go to do that?

    The Tour series is discontinued. The 9650 "Tour 2" will be branded a bold. Looks like it will be released sometime in May.

    Looks like June will be the release for the Bold. I just switched from Verizon. I love "this" Bold 9700
