    Is there another purpose of unlocking BB other then to use other carriers? I just bought a used 8700r and am looking in getting a curve or bold and want to know if I need to get it unlocked (or buy a unlocked one) if I'm sticking with Rogers. Thanks. (Yes, I did a search!!)

    Nope. Thats' the only reason I've ever unlocked one. Welcome to CB.

    The other reason is to use it over seas without getting hit with international data charges, just get a temp account over there with a carrier and then get rid of it when you leave.

    One other point: If you decide to sell it and it is unlocked
    you increase your pool of potential customers.
    Locked and it is limited to whatever carrier it is branded to.
