The new Blackberry Bold 9790 should be here in North America soon!
It already released in Indonesia and is coming to us in North America very shortly!
(some networks are already getting real and dummy units in stock)
If you want to get a Bold 9790 from a different network and unlock it to use with any international network you will have to unlock it.
Here's how you can enter the unlock code in your Blackberry 9790 Bold and permanently unlock it!

If you need to get the unlocking code for your Bold 9790.
I bought a new Bold 9790 from Dubai, and Its locked to Etisalat. after Im back to Egypt, I got it unlocked, but I cant get Blackberry Messenger, Appworld or Blackbery protect to work. the phone is working and I can call and receive calls , but when trying to connect to the said applications it gives me a messages the data service is not operational.
what should I do, to get it properly functioning.????
Sounds like you need to make sure to get a Blackberry plan activated on your phone. Just FYI, having unlimited data does not mean you have a Blackberry plan that enables the features you are talking about (BBM, etc.). Give your carrier a call and they should be able to help out.
Thank you very much for sorting the refund for me, mistakes can happen and its how they are fixed that sorts the good out from the bad and im glad to report Mark has sorted it for me, so all good
I have just had the same issue. Purchased a code for a blackberry bold 9790. Hit the redirect button from paypal and it sends me to a screen "I ordered a blackberry bold 9790 code about 15 min ago. the re-direct screen from the paypal screen says "CALCULATING YOUR UNLOCK CODE
Your order has been successfully created and is being processed. Please stand by...page keeps refreshing but nothing else happens. this is the first time using your service. why haven't i received my unlock code yet?
I decided to go with someone else and i received a code automatically. i would like to get my money back
