    It does not void the warranty as carriers charge $50 to provide an unlock code for your device.

    Nope the only thing that voids your warranty is physical damage, water damage, and opening up your phone.

    Yes it does void the warranty. I was told by a Bell rep here in Canada if I were to unlock my bold 9900 the warranty will void.. Just what I was told not 100% sure

    Sorry but the rep misinformed you. Bell sells unlock codes to their devices if you are an existing client and have the device on your account for at least 90 days and they charge $50 TO UNLOCK IT. Why would they void their own warranties ?

    It doesn't void the warranty -

    Most networks even sell unlock codes or provide them free to customers who have been with them for a long time.

    It is 100% legal and your right to unlock your cellphone

    The U.S. Copyright Office Ruling:

    "The underlying activity sought to be performed by the owner of the handset is to allow the handset to do what it was manufactured to do -- lawfully connect to any carrier. This is a noninfringing activity by the user"




    Let us know if you have any other questions,


    Cheers,

    should i say the same? nope, i will just say that i agree with the others...
    I have changed a few phones that was unlocked before, no problems at all.

    The unlocking it self can be done by unlock code that some carriers sell (not cheap as Blackberry unlocking websites) and it's the same code you can get from us.
    same as changing OS on your device - it won't effect the warranty.

    Nope. Unlocking will have no effect on the warranty of your phone. Playing around with the software wont do it but messing around with the hardware of your cellphone will void the warranty for sure.
