Verizon Blackberry Bold in Thailand


Recommended Posts

I am thinking about buying a Blackberry Bold here in the US on one of Verizon's plans. Will it work (calls and email) in Thailand on my current Thai sim card? I am a iphone user and it is too much trouble to get the phone jailbroken and get a microsim card in Thailand and then restore it when I return to the US. I am looking for an easy phone and email fix. Land in BKK and change to a Thai sim card and put in the US sim card when I get back to the states. I am not buying another iphone to use in Thailand as they are too much money.

i just bought the bold 9650 for that reason and with several calls to tech support the answer i got was it will work with the thai sim once you switch the settings to gsm. my next trip is the 9th of may so i guess i will find out for sure then i'm with alltel still but it is the same phone and tech support.

Is your BB Bold dual mode (CDMA + GSM)? SIMs are for GSM networks which Verizon is not. There is a CDMA carrier in Thailand but most CDMA operators will not add a foreign ESN to their inventory. Let us know how it works out.


OTOH, why not just jailbreak and unlock your iPhone? It is so easy these days.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
