    He got it from Rogers Canada last year.
    But for some reason it does not recognize any sim card back home.

    I am not sure if this is the right place to ask tis question but
    Can anyone pls help me out with this number , will be very greatfull.
    Keith

    You will need to unlock the phone. You will have to get the phone's unlock code either from the provider or via an unlcok service. You can find them online or on ebay. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    You can purchase it on ebay or you can even call the provider they will give it to you for a fee

    Hey Brian,
    Checked out a few sites online like crackberry.com and unlocktotalk.com.
    Wanted to know if these sites are safe for online payments.
    But their rates to unlock are friggin' high ...
    Considering that the Pearl was a gift i would nt wanna spend to unlock it.
    Any other suggestion .... Anyone???

    Did you see the link I posted above? Unless you can get the unlock code from your service provider, I'm afraid you will have to pay for it.

    everywhere is gonna be pretty high if you dont go through the service provider and if you go through them you have to have service with them for so long

    I think some people have found unlocking for as low as 10 bucks out on eBay.
