Something interesting I discovered on Z10/BB10
I bought my Z10 on the first day, here in uk, on a pay as you go sim for 480 pounds from O2(locked)! Because I am from Cyprus and I will use the phone there as well, I asked O2 to unlock the phone and in two days the unlock code was here for 15 pounds! (total cost about 500 pounds). I am going to visit Cyprus on Wednesday so I decide to try my MTN Cyprus sim card on the phone. And then I came across a big surprise! I don't know about the phones sold by carriers in US, but here if you buy a BB 7 or lower from any carrier, there is a boot screen with the logo of this carrier, even if you have unlocked the phone or you insert other carrier's sim! Like this photos of my 9700 on T-mobile UK with an MTN Cyprus sim!
But this is not the case with BB10 on Z10! Here you can see my O2 Z10 on the home network, on Three UK and on MTN Cyprus
The phone recognise the carrier and shows its logo. Sim cards have not enough memory for this I think, so the logos are stored somewhere in the phone!
P.S.1 I also try a sim card from GiggGaff, a virtual carrier works on O2 network, but no logo appeared, just "BlackBerry10".
P.S.2 I have some other sim cards, from T-mobile UK, Orange UK and Cytamobile-Vodafone Cyprus but is not micro-sim so I couldn't try them.
