the bb 8330 was not offered to the NY market because of recuency bands incompatibility.

The 8330 works only on Metro's legacy markets like Fl, TX, etc which operate on the PCS frecuency.

Newer markets like NY or Las Vegas operate on a different frecuency band known as AWS.

Eventough is not officially confirmed yet it is rumored in several forums that Metro will update to the newer Curve 8530 and supposly it will be compatible with the AWS band.

I guess time will tell.
