    this question will be nicely answered by carrier..
    usually it will be locked by your carrier..
    ask then ask for unlock policy..
    usually vodafone will give free unlock code after 90 days or 3 billing cycles or which ever is earlier...
    ask you carrier for more details.

    3 will unlock it straight away, pay as you go and contract, but they will charge you 15 for this However, the sales advisor who told me this on phone is so stupid that while am typing this he just said that Bold 9900 do not have touch screen but screen is pretty big LMFAO.. Do these guys actually know about any phone? Damn made ma day

    Lol, never listen to sales reps, I took a Smart Car for a test drive and the sales rep was telling me it had front wheel drive.

    I thought the much bigger wheels on the back would've been a big clue lol.

    I can imagine all the questions you have in your mind as I had all these in my mind as well before getting one, but I am totally new to BB and straight away installed OS 7.1.0.205 to brand new BB before doing anything else and since then its working like a charm.. You always have to take little bit risk in everything.. Yes they will replace it even if it get bricked.

    On the side note, if you are not going to play with your OS, then I recommend to get it unlocked from 3 as they will just give you a code and your device will be unlocked rather than going to ebay because if am not wrong you need to post your phone to ebay user to get it unlocked? Your call mate but I never trusted ebay

    Hahaha seriously? thats worst than what I experienced but I could not stop laughing when he said Bold 9900 do not have touch screen and I looked at my Bold 9900 to let it know how people disrespect its qualities
