    If you bought a locked pearl you have to unlock it to use with other sim cards than the one's of your carrier.

    Are you sure you will be able to use the pearl there? Do they use GSM?

    Pearls are quad band and will work in Asia if your carrier can. Ask them. Yes, it needs to be unlocked if you want to use another sim than your carrier's.

    HI if your phone is unlocked you will not lose any themes as they are fixed to the os and definately get another chip for phone calls as roaming charges are crazy , but you will not be able to collect your mails with another chip unless you use gmail with wap

    Since your using Tmobile they will unlock it. You have to be with them for 90 days and your payments on time. If you meet the qualifications, Call 611 and tell customer service that you want to unlock your phone as your traveling overseas. Give Them the IMEI# its listed in your phone. Go to options then click on status. Give them an email address and they will send it less than 5 days later.

    I have unlocked 5 phones this way...No problems. If you are not at 90 days yet, send me a private message with your IMEI# (make sure its correct or you will have problems) I will call and get the unlock code for you and PM you with the instructions.
