    I'm aware this question has probably been asked before but I cannot find a thread in the search.

    I am currently a vodafone customer paying 40 a month and want to get a Blackberry curve 8520. I can change my contract minutes to get Blackberry solutions which I'll do If I get one. I'm looking to buy a Curve and the cheapest I've found is an Orange PAYG for 150 (Other sim free / unlocked sites I've seen for 200). If I were to buy it Sim free of Vodafone it would cost 250. Obviously it'd be cheaper to buy it on Orange and unlock it.

    My question though is, If I pay to get a blackberry unlocked does it mean when it gets updated every other week/month I'll need to re-unlock it like people had to with the Iphone. Obviously this would work out really expensive in thelonger run.

    Has anyone else successfully bought a Blackberry and got it unlocked without having to do so every other week/month?

    Thanks for reading and thanks if you can reply with useful infomation.

    No worries, once it has been unlocked, it will not "re-lock", ever.

    If you upgrade it in the future, it will continue to work correctly.

    As mentioned above, Blackberry Unlocking is permanent, even if you upgrade/downgrade the OS, reset the phone, it will never relock.
