Default Which company still supports Curve 8330?

Please Login to Remove!

Boost dropped support for Curve 8330 and I love the raised keyboard on this phone - do any other companies provide monthly plans for this phone?

Also, can I switch a "Boost" phone to another carrier?

Thank you!

If it still works and you know the original carrier see if they will activate it.
The Phone OS and hardware is not supported by Blackberry.
Sprint and Verizon had these models but the radio is different on various models and that will give you a direction on carrier selection.
Blackberry does have new models with exposed keyboards.

Browser displays for cell phones are usually arranged by the web developer building the site not the cell phone maker and using the browser developed for cell phones. Web browser developers take into account the size of the display and other restrictions such as memory needed.
the bigger question is will a cell phone company have the OS needed to support the latest browsers. One way to "force " users to the latest device is to cease development or stop upgrades on older platforms or OS. All cell phone makers do this and Blackberry is doing it also. Apple is so far the leader in upgrades.
