    I ended up typing the unlock code while the Bell BlackBerry 9900 ask if I wanted to unlock the phone from the beginning of the screen instead of following the instruction. Now it says Rogers H+ and when I go to the Sim Card settings you see:

    Sim Card: Security Disabled
    ID: (bunch of numbers)
    Phone Numbers:

    (my cellphone number)

    Is this normal? What does H+ mean? Shouldnt it say 3G?

    No its not unlocked.

    the H+ signifies you are connected to the HSPA+ "4G" network and not the slower 3G network - it's a good thing.


    EDIT if you had an unlock code and you are using a bell Bold on the rogers network, it is indeed unlocked. the H+ is still the same as I stated above.

    H+ is HSPA Plus. Supposed to be faster than 3G.

    Yes, I had an unlock code. The 9900 was originally locked on Bell and I am trying to use it on Rogers now. Quick question, if I am in Canada and I have data, do I need 'While Roaming' on or off?

    You can leave roaming 'off'. It will only come into play when you leave the Rogers' network (ie: roaming on a network other than Rogers).

    Note that if you have the setting 'ON' while roaming you will incur really expensive data charges.
