    Hey everyone. new here. great site.

    my first topic is my curiosity with the performance difference b/w an unlocked and locked bb (or any phone for that matter). I heard but don't know if its true that if you remove your service provider settings (unlocking) on your bb, you'll get a slight increase in performance of the phone. Is this even remotely true?

    ok in all honesty, no performance gain. Just carrier selection.

    it gives your phone about the same performance gain you get by slapping pep boys racing stickers on a honda.

    MOAR!!!!!!!!

    GSM devices have the choice to be locked or unlocked either by carrier or you. CDMA phones, not so much unless they are world phones (Tour and Storm can work on gsm carriers).

    Works well if you unlock your BB and are a traveler world wide. You can use other networks.

    I haven't noticed any difference performace-wise.

    Just makes the phone "moveable" between carriers and increases the resale value but that's about it.

    Don't you mean a GT-R badge sticker?

    And so this means a huge performance improvement right? Those stickers make my car soooooo much faster...



    In all seriousness, no performance difference as stated numerous times. I just couldn't resist the fun.
