    Hi Forum,

    I've just come into a few Storm 9530 that I'm looking to sell. They're locked and branded on Telus in Canada.

    I know how to unlock them.

    My question is simply, does the unlock work the same way that, say, a Bold 9700 does? As in does the unlock let it work on Rogers, Bell, AT&T, etc (all GSM networks?) I know that there is an "Activation Required" message that pops up on the top. I've tried to sell a Telus Storm once before that was on Telus and unlocked. The guy was trying to use it on Rogers but I just couldn't make it work.

    So... what's the deal? Should I sell exclusively as a Telus/Koodo phone or should I unlock them?


    Thanks guys,

    Luke

    I don't see why it wouldn't be the same. Albeit, I'll let someone else confirm this.

    But, let me ask this, was the device previously on a BES server? If yes, I'm wondering if that 'activation required' is part of the BES policy. In which case, the policy would need to be removed from the device.We have a few threads on here on how to do this...
