    Would the same CDMA networkfor Sprint apply to Bell Mobility (Canada's) network? Does it run seamlessly or would Sprints network ID have to dumped? I am a virgin to this stuff but am hot and bothered about the 650. Help me!

    the general consensus is that you can't transfer it... you _may_ be able to get the telephone function to work, but you'd need to get bell to at the ESN ids to their internal database in order to get the data to work, which they won't do

    You need to have the phone's ESN added to the carrier's database to activate it at all, not just for data. As long as you have the MSL and get someone to add the ESN, it's pretty easy to get the phone activated for voice. Data is another story. However plenty of people have had Sprint Treo 650's activated on Verizon with 100% functionality. The same thing should be possible with Bell. To make the process easier shadowmite has a custom ROM with all the changes made for Verizon, perhaps he could do the same for Bell.

    Sounds like Sprint. Verizon's been known to do it but Sprint won't add foreign ESN's either.
