    Welcome to BBOS
    No problem. Thanks for the welcome. I forgot to mention that the upcoming Tour should be able to run on a GSM provider as well (I think its a world phone). The Storm 9530 and the Tour 9630 will only be able to access the EDGE frequencies since the phones only include the 2100 HSDPA spectrum. If you want a touch screen BB and don't mind the 2.5G speeds, the Storm is worth it. Storm 2 is around the corner as well. I'd pass on the Tour and wait for the Magnum or the other three GSM BBs to be released this year (I hope). Also the 9500 Storm will only run on EDGE since it doesn't have the 1900/850 3G bands and the unique 1700 3G band from T-Mobile.

    This link may help determine what capabilities the GSM phones will have here in North America (Wikipedia)

    Stated by tavella81:
    The only CDMA Blackberry that can work on a GSM network in North America is the 9530 (Storm). The 8830 is the only other CDMA Blackberry with a SIM card slot and does not support any North American GSM frequency bands.

    The 8130 (Pearl), 8230 (Pearl Flip), and 8330 (Curve) do not have SIM card slots and will only run on a CDMA network.

    I was under the impression the 8830 and 8330 both were CDMA with no SIM card slot, but the 8830 World Edition, and the 8330 World Edition both had SIM card slots (but can't be used on North American GSM frequencies).

    Then again I was also under the impression the 8330's only had 64 Mb memory, and the 8330 World Edition's had 96 Mb memory, but the latest Telus 8330's (non-World Edition) seem to have 96 Mb memory too.

    Not confusing at all.
