    Is it possible to have an Incredible unlocked on at&t's network and still maintain 3G? I have a Blackberry Storm 9530 (1st gen).. and I know for a fact I can't get 3G with it. So I'm just curious if it is possible at all?

    Negative.

    Incredible is CDMA technology. AT&T uses GSM.

    true... but so is the blackberry storm and I was able to get an unlocked storm with a sim card area.. and have it on at&t. so that's why I wasn't sure if someone has gotten to that yet

    The DInc doesn't have a sim card area.

    Certain BBs were global phones (as well as BB making radios specific to VZW in some of their models)

    The Incredible is a VZW exclusive and will NOT work on AT&T

    Yeah... the Storm was a GSM/CDMA "World Phone"... it could be unlocked to use the GSM SIM card on other carriers... Droid Inc. is strictly CDMA.

    I think Baby Jesus is too young for cell phone. Maybe after his Bar Mitzvah he can get a cell phone... maybe a Kin.

    I think he would have a Jitterbug, he doesn't need our petty technology or "apps". :p Although that would probably mean no Jitterbug either....

    Anyways, on the subject of Sim cards, there's some solder pads on the Incs circuit board that look like they're made for a sim card slot. Of course it's not a matter of just soldering in a sim slot and calling it a day, there's more involved, but I thought I would share:

    Dear 8 pounds 6 ounce...new born infant Jesus, don't even know a word yet...what phone would you choose?

    I like to picture Jesus in a tuxedo T-Shirt because it says I want to be formal, but I'm here to party.

    I like to think of Jesus like with giant eagles wings, and singin' lead vocals for Lynyrd Skynyrd with like an angel band and I'm in the front row and I'm hammered drunk!

    Wouldn't Jesus have a phone from the future. I mean.....wouldn't being the son of God have those kinds of perks?
