    It means that the Blackberry doesn't have to be used on just one carrier. The original carrier has released or unlocked it so it can be used on other carriers.

    Wow. Thank you. Does anyone know how or why this done? Seems to me the S.O.B.'s would never do that.

    How: there is a process that needs to be followed whereby an unlock code is entered. This is the code that needs to come from the carrier.

    Why: I think more carriers are doing it to keep their good customers happy. If you need to go overseas for instance, you would want an unlocked unit so that you could buy a SIM card from the country you are in to use. There are also places where you can get a unit unlocked for a fee in the event the carrier won't do it for you.
