A BlackBerry being locked is quite independent of the OS. If you've unlocked your BlackBerry, then upgrading the OS should not affect this.
You are not restricted to only an OS branded by your carrier. You can install an OS build intended for another carrier on your BlackBerry. However, there may be specific OS related apps or services which may or may not function afterwards; but that would only be a limit of the OS, not of the BlackBerry.
You can always try it, and if you don't like it, you can switch back to the previous OS.
sreedotk, Welcome to PinStack.
I think lewis has your questions covered, as usual. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.
Hi sreedotk welcome to pinstack.
Thanks Lewis for the detailed reply. I will try the local providers version and see if it suits my working environment.
I appreciate the welcome from all, Thanks again
