    It cannot be done. Unlocking means having the ability to use other providers SIM cards. The 8130 is a CDMA device that does not use SIM cards.

    Ask lak stated can't be done. Need a sim card slot to actually have a chance of being unlocked.

    You'd need to acquire a GSM BlackBerry for unlocking. The other CDMA carriers won't let you on their network. You could get flashed to something like Virgin Mobile or Boost, but a major won't let you.

    Only phones that have SIM cards can be unlocked. GSM/HSPA/LTE currently.
