    Question Will blackberry software work on straight talk wireless?

    Walmarts new wireless carrier... can i just change my meid(esn) on the verizon blackberry(9530) to the one on the weak ass phone they supplied ( LG 220CM) . and it will work?

    anyone tried this ?

    the straight talk service claims to run on cdma and is linked to the verizon network in several major stocks.

    The phone supplied (LG 220CM ) Is a cdma phone . ..

    ive hacked and upgraded alot of phones( iphones, palms, htc's, and a bunch of other touch screen phones,, but never a blackberry ..

    any help is appriciated ... thanks

    Yeah, the carrier has to have service books and services through RIM. If they don't, there's no point in even trying it. So, if I were you, I'd just double-check and make sure they sell Blackberrys before I tried putting one on their network.

    As far as making the data work if they do... you just need to make sure you push the right programming. I've went back and forth between networks with the same handset multiple times and got the data working just fine.
