    Quick question guys, I am a real phone newbie here.

    I currently have a blackberry plan on Rogers here in Canada, and was wondering if I buy an unlocked Verizon Droid, would I be able to use this with my sim?

    thanks guys!

    The Droid is CDMA, sim's are used on GSM networks. So no you wouldn't be able to.

    This isn't quite true. All carriers in Canada use GSM now, but there are two that just very recently overlaid there CDMA networks with GSM. The CDMA network is still there. They can't just dismantle the CDMA network without alienating the millions that still have CDMA-only phones. But whether an unlocked Verizon will work on their CDMA network, I don't know.

    Canada's CDMA operators defect to HSPA/LTE - FierceBroadbandWireless

    EDIT: And yes the Milestone will work there.
