    Has anyone here had /have a Q10 from Sprint unlocked? Additionally any experience in using in another country? Heading to S. America this summer with the family and would like to be able to use this phone there. I'm no longer a sprint subscriber but I own the phone outright. I'm aware that probably cannot use the phone on other US networks, but I just want it for International use. Thanks in advance for any insight!

    They claim it's unlocked/unlockable for international use, but it's not. So I recommend you take another phone with you, if possible. And if you can, test the Q10 in South America to confirm that it's not unlocked.

    So you've tried and it didn't work? Or they simply didn't unlock like they said they would? Thanks

    I am not a Sprint customer, but they tell people that they've unlocked their phones for international use, but when people get to their destination, they find out it's not true. Read the thread I added to my previous post with an edit.

    So they may or may not be "unlocking" the phone, but the end result is that the phone is staying locked.

    Thanks for links... good information. Question, based on the supposed changes Sprint made this month in regards to unlocking phones, do you think that will help my case or am I simply better off getting an unlocked phone direct from BlackBerry, like a Q5 or something? Thanks again

    Sorry one last question, do you by chance have any similar information for the Bold? I have one of those from sprint as well, that could potentially be another solution. Don't want to buy a new phone if I don't have to, thank you

    I believe the Bold is unlockable.
