    iPhone and BlackBerry Tour
    I just recently purchased a new BlackBerry Tour. It has a SIM card in the back of the unit. Want to know if this SIM card will indeed work in a Apple iPhone. I believe that the Tour is working on the GSM network.

    Anyone with any thoughts on this, please let me know either here on this forum or by email. jamespjack@gmail.com

    Thanks.

    James

    If it is a Verizon Tour it is not using the SIM. My Storm has a SIM but it is not used for anything. It is still using the Verizon standard and has the SIM slot for global use. The phone could be unlocked to allow AT&T, T-Mobile, etc. to work in the phone. Putting the Verizon SIM into an iPhone will not work.

    I just wanted to add that the SIM is not active to any network when you get the phone. It can be removed and the phone will function fine. My Storm does not even have the Verizon SIM installed.

    Let me know if you don't like that Tour and I'll trade you for an unlocked Storm!

    I appreciate the feedback about the SIM card in the Tour. That's not really the answer that I was looking for, but what are you gonna do? I'm locked into using Verizon. My BlackBerry is bought and paid for monthly by my company, and I really can't see the need to have a personal and business cell phone.

    As far as the trade for the Tour and the Storm, thanks for the offer, but it was the Storm that I handed back to Verizon for the Tour. My Storm was constantly lock up and need to be rebooted about 4-5 times a day. It was about to take the trip out the window.

    I told the techs at Verizon that my 'most advanced phone in the world' has become my 'most advanced pain in the a**'

    Again, thanks for the input.

    Yeah, the Storm trade was more of a joke. I am in the same boat. I am sick of pulling the battery, freeze ups, etc. I am off to Verizon this weekend to see what can be done. Hopefully it won't cost me too much.
