    Well, I'm completely new to BB. I m using Blackberry Bold 9700 with OS 5.0.0.344. I'm from India, here its not launched officially yet, i guess, its UK based phone, unlocked i hope, VODAFONE carrier (i use AirTel). Now my question is, i want to upgrade it to the latest version, the only question is, how do i unlock? or does it really need unlock anyway?
    If possible i need complete guide from downloading/installing new OS to my BB and unlock it to use it with my carrier (if any), it will be really appreciated.

    THANKS

    Your phone needs to be unlocked in order to use it on a different network than it was built for... if not the SIM card will NOT work.

    You can upgrade the OS to ANY version that is built for your device... it has nothing to do with it being unlocked and will not effect the unlock/lock status.

    You might want to check out the Blackberry 101 lessons here on CB... there is a link in my signature below, as well as a link under "Blackberry Help" at the top of every forum page.

    There is only one way to unlock your device, but several places to unlock them... you need an unlock code... the place is the difference... I preferred to use my carrier... there are other websites that you can use to unlock your device... sorry, I don't use or recommend any... you use Google to find those.
