    Ok so my aunt wants to buy a new blackberry. unfourtanately in DR their pretty pricey. so she wants to purchase off of ebay. or i can buy it and send it to her.

    How would i know if an unlocked phone will work in DR.
    does it matter as long as it says its unlocked.


    and if anything. i have a sprint 9650 supports sim. if i unlick it can she use it in DR.

    She currantly has a bold 9000 and wants a 9700 but will settle for 9650.

    any suggestions?

    The 9650 will work in DR on 2G .. To check to see if it is unlocked:

    Options - Advanced - Sim Card - Type MEPD .. if everything says disabled then it is unlocked

    Please see image below:

    just shows ID: (########)
    NOTHING UNDER IT.

    but either way she uses 3G in DR.
    are all the blackberry different when it comes to unlocking.
    she has her mind set on 9700 hundred.

    Pull the battery out and then try again .. make sure there is a sim inside..

    It is usually the same process with all blackberries except a variation with a condenced keyboard.

    sometimes the easiest fix is taking the battery out and trying again!
