    So I had a possible situation with my carrier, and was doing some research about what steps I would need to take to take my business elsewhere...turns out I don't have to leave, but I was mildly surprised when I followed the steps to check for a (un)locked status, and everything came up disabled, swapped over to my 3g+2g, vs 2g, dropped the dual, and still worked like a champ. This was a boxed Bold from an At&t store, purchased on day one. Nothing other than os updates (4.6.0.282 currently), so my question to everyone is this: did I get lucky being sold an unlocked phone from the start, or is there something I'm missing? Anyone else have any knowledge or experience concerning this?

    Thanks

    Mine was actually unlocked out of the box also. Hasn't benefitted me yet.

    It's been mentioned before that the .282 OS allows at&t bolds to switch to 2g only mode. Unlocked means you can use any SIM card in it. Haven't heard of any at&t branded devices coming out of the box unlocked, but maybe.

    I heard from the grapevine that AT&T is no longer locking any of their Blackberry devices, due to none AT&T customers flooding their customer support lines unlock codes.
