    Unlocking my Pearl

    Q out there to all of my fellow super intelligent BB users....

    What exactly is the ability gained by unlocking one's BB??

    My apologies if I sound obtuse, however, newer BB user here and I've read a bit on unlocking the phone, but I don't fully grasp the concept.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Hi mworcester. Welcome to the Stacks. The only advantage of unlocking the phoen is that it is no longer branded to a given carrier. If it is a GSM phone you can put any sim card into the device, if cdma you can bring to a different carrier. Hope it helps.

    i suppose you mean to internationaly unlock it, it basically means you could use other sim cards and if you are traveling around the world you could use your phone internationaly.

    Since I have no intent on flip-flopping from one carrier to another...I will pass. Thank you for the information!
