    So a while back I've posted that my Blackberry Priv is network locked, I've buyed it second hand, and loving it till this day. Its the STV100-3 varriant.

    I really would like to know from with provider it orginaly came from, so I can give the correct network provider its locked to the unluck services online, so I can get an working unlock code.

    If any one can help me out would be great!

    THANK YOU!

    You shouldn't be posting your IMEI on a pubic forum..

    Someone once told me IMEI.info is useful

    Agreed, you should remove the IMEI number, that isn't something one should put out there...

    The simplest way to try and ascertain what network the device is locked to would be to visit the APN settings and hit up the 'default' settings... On your Priv visit 'Settings' > Under 'Wireless & Network' header select 'More' > 'Cellular Network Settings' > 'Access Point Names' This should show you what is set, but you may want to press the overflow menu (the 3 vertical dots located to the top left of the view in APN's) and select 'Reset to Default' to be sure, but from here you will easily be able to get a read on the locked carrier...

    The damned greyed out areas... Is there anything resembling bloatware from another carrier on your device? Any carrier branded apps or games or even anything in bookmarks that would give away what carrier? (I'm assuming there isn't a carrier specific splashscreen at start up or any carrier trampstamps on the device body itself which would be the most obvious...)

    That screen doesn't mean anything... Koodo doesn't sell Privs.

    OP said his phone was still LOCKED to a carrier, meaning that the carrier's APN settings would be in place as default... In this particular case the APN (should we have had access to it) would have meant something...

    Not necessarily. All the APN settings are actually stored on the phone. It's not a reliable test.

    If the phone was factory reset all the defaults would restore including default APN's, this is typical with carrier specific models...

    South Caribbean... I'm willing to bet it's a Canadian unit. You have the PRD number on the box by chance?

    I think the most possible way is to look at the build code. It's AAF057 as per what i can see on your screenshot. And yours is STV3. Based on what i know, STV3 is the model specifically sold for Asia Pac market.

    There are hundreds of network carriers in APAC region but only few have been selling the Priv. Anyone knows a trusted website where we can trace IMEI?

    You may ask one of many unlock service on the internet.

    I have a good experience with this place:
    https://www.unlockbase.com/unlock-ph...ackberry/priv/

    Check the box that says "I don't know the name and country of the original network provider"
