    1. On your BlackBerry, go to Options > Advanced Options > Sim Card.
    2. At that screen type MEPD (see note below) on your keyboard. A new menu will pop up.

    **If your BlackBerry has a SureType keyboard (71xx and 81xx devices) you will need to double-tap the P, so the actual keys entered become M E P P D.
    3. Look for Network in the list.
    4. If your device is "unlocked", it should say Disabled or Inactive. If it says Active, it's still locked to that carrier.

    hi,
    when the list comes up..
    it says unknown for everything except the phone number.

    what does that mean ? is it locked or unlocked ?

    thanks,
    Kevin

    If the SIM card is from another carrier and you can make calls then your phone is unlocked.

    Then we shall assume that Unknown does not mean Unlocked. Was there a reson you suspected that the unit was unlocked?

    7100i is a Nextel phone not GSM. It will not work on a GSM sim card or with a GSM carrier.
