    Default how to find out which country the BB is locked into?

    Hello there,

    I was wondering if there's a way to find out which country my BB is locked into.
    The model is 8110 with Vodafone logo displayed underneath the keypad.
    The phone is currently locked and i want to unlock it, and someone who can unlock it asked me which country this BB belongs to.

    Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

    BR,
    Ben

    Try gsm phone source for unlocking. It is probably locked to vodafone if the logo is there

    From your BB desktop hold down alt or shift & type EACE (you won't see what you type) and on the screen that comes up look for the vendor ID.

    All the Vodafone contries have a different vendor ID number so you then need to find out which country corresponds with your number.

    Good luck

    Am I correct in saying that your vendor ID is 179?

    Vendor ID « Bozz-x e-Store

    My vendor ID is also 179 and it was purchased as an unlocked sim free handset so it is not tied to any mobile network. I would assume that yours will be the same.

    I bought mine sim free and it is also 179. The F100 probably means just that i.e. no vendor.

    Fast-100 is the RIM program to develop new cellular partnerships. For a guess the tag is used as VendorID for devices shipped to 'new partner' resellers who do not yet have their own ID code.

    I found my vendor ID is different from where I subscribe my blackberry services. Is the vendor ID will change every time you are travel to other country?
