    if you go to:

    options
    advanced options
    sim card

    once in sim card press mepd (you wont see anything on the screen when you press this). If entered correctly you should see personalization with sim, network, network subset etc... listed. If they all say disabled then your phone is unlocked.

    well all of mine say disabled. I do not have a corporate account nor am I on a BES. they may be different if these apply to you.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong here.

    But if I remember correctly the VZW 88xx are basically unlocked on the GSM side (and the SIM card), but they won't work inside the US with other providers' SIM's.

    to my knowledge the Sprint 8830 is completely unlocked for international GSM where as VZ is locked execpt for one or two international GSM carriers. Both phones are locked in north america.

    T- Mo: BB 9700, 8900, 8220
    Sprint: BB 8330, 8830, 8130, 8703, 7250

    But there's a beautiful view of the end of the world from the pier.....

    What if it just says "unknown" for all of those?
