Hey everyone! Just like the subject states have you ever used an unlocked bb?I'm selling my moms iPhone for her and my sister is going to use the $ to buy a bb. She really likes the pink curve for verizon but we have AT&T. So has anyone had any problems with unlocked phones? Any info would be appreciated thanks
I won the Haiku contest here on Crackberry and I selected the Bold as my prize. My carrier is Centnnial Wireless and when my Bold arrives, it was a branded AT & T phone. I called AT & T on a Friday night and I had to fax them documentation of the contest along with my contact information, pin number and IMEI number. They said it would be 48 hours b4 I would receive my "unlock code". The following Monday morning I received it, plugged it in and I've been up and running with no problems.
Both my 8120 and 8900 have been unlocked, although they were both bought that way. I've found as long as you have all the correct settings, such as APN settings, you shouldn't have a problem. I've had no (well, very few) issues using BBM and App World. In fact, my 8120 is now in the increasingly capably hands of my mum on a different carrier to the one I used it on and she hasn't had a single problem!
Just make sure that when you buy a Blackberry on ebay or similar that the pin isn't blocked for some reason, like the previous owner owing money to their carrier.
