    Absolutely no cons....you just need to make sure that the Blackberry you buy is compatible with your Network, if so then all features will work as long as you have a Blackberry Data Plan (BIS or BES).

    Just to point out that an unlocked phone is unnecessary if you do not travel out of the country or if you use it exclusively with the carrier it is locked to. The only negative of buying an already unlocked phone is that they're usually more expensive, so if you have the choice of purchasing a phone locked to your carrier or an unlocked one and that one is more expensive, go with the locked one. You can always get an unlock code for free from the carrier if you need to unlock it in the future.

    Assuming you're using it on the same carrier that the phone originated from..then yes you're 100% right. Alot of our customers are weary of unlocking their phones because they think they'll do something wrong and fry it. Its REALLY hard to not follow the detailed instructions properly, but some people are more comfortable with buying a phone thats already unlocked rather than doing it themselves

    NoahFecks has good point though. Unlocked phones are always more expensive. It's true that a lot of people buy phones that did not originate from their own carrier. In cases like those I'd be inclined to buy a locked phone anyway if it's cheaper and unlock it myself to make it work on my carrier. Unlock codes are really cheap these days if the company the phone is locked to won't give you one for free.

    There are also some contests here on CB for free unlock codes. You might want to take a chance on winning one. I won one.
