    I have a local shop that says they'll back up my passport, do the unlock and then restore my backup. Will my BlackBerry be the exact same as it was prior to doing that backup, just unlocked now? Or will I lose some things when the restore is done. Asking because I have snap and a bunch of apps installed.

    Why do they need to backup the phone? Unlocking the phone is done by inputting a code. It shouldn't affect the actual contents.

    He says he can have it done in 30 mins by resetting the phone but to keep the data I gotta back it up. Otherwise I wait a day for an unlock code to come in. Not sure what that means.

    Just buy the code yourself from one of the unlocking sites. Once you have it, punch it in and you are done. You can always do a backup before if you really want to but I never did.
