    Two posts with the same question? Hmmm...

    Unlocking means that some BBs are locked to a carrier or a network. When you have an unlocked BB you can use an TMO-SIM in an eg Vodafone BB.

    Unlocking means you can use it on any GSM network.luke peter said. Ex: TMO or AT&T.

    The only reason you would need to unlock your pearl is if you wanted to keep it but change carriers. Or if you phone isn't offered for your carrier you buy it from another carrier and unlock it to use with yours. Keep in mind youi still need a plan with your carrier and a SIM card.
    It doesn't mean free calling or any of that non sense.

    The process of unlocking has two options.

    1. For free. Call your carrier. If you've been with them for 90 days and your account is in good standing you can request a code. This is for free. (Keep in mind the phone has to brand your carrier)

    2. Many sites offer unlocking for a fee. Ranging $20 to $50 dollars. www.gsmphonesource.com is a good one that many people use.

    Hope that helps
