    HSPA Friendly BB's by Telus

    So, we all know now that none of our BB's will be compliant with the new HSPA network that Telus is launching....

    Which phone do you think they will bring aboard for us???

    ....aside from the iPhone.....

    the Tour will not work on the new HSPA network only current blackberry they had at launch was the 9700. if you were to unlock the Tour if would work on a network such as Rogers or Fido...however it would only run EDGE, not 3G

    I want to see what they will be offering next summer as the network will finally have proper coverage in Manitoba, as it is they didn't launch any handset in Winnipeg, you can get them if you go to another city and bring it home. as there is coverage in the city of winnipeg, but nothing beyond that currently.
