1. Your GSM Blackberry can be unlocked - No matter what GSM model you have on any network, there is a 95% success rate using professional unlocking services to unlock your model. Just because you read that people cannot unlock your Blackberry, does not mean it cannot be done by anyone. Do more research as you did to get here and you will get it done. CDMA cannot, we will talk more about that later on.

2. Give Yourself Time - Unlock your Blackberry in advance, depending on your network, it can take up to 10 business days to unlock your phone. Specially for international networks outside North American. At the time this was written here are some examples for time periods. Rogers Blackberry Unlock (0-2 business days), Cingular Blackberry Unlock (1-2 business days), T Mobile Blackberry Unlock (1-3 business days), Vodafone UK Blackberry Unlock (1-3 business days), other networks vary, you need to check the Global Unlock website (fastest possible methods are only used)

3. GSM vs CDMA - Blackberry comes in two different technologies. You can only unlock GSM Blackberry (networks like Blackberry T Mobile Unlock, Blackberry Cingular Unlock, Blackberry Rogers Unlock, Blackberry Vodafone Unlock). You cannot unlock CDMA Blackberry (Sprint, Verizon, Bell, Telus). Outside North America 90% of networks are GSM and the success rate with our service is 95% to unlock blackberry phones. Blackberry has recently introduced Dual CDMA/GSM, at this time they come unlocked, however the frequency makes it so you can only use it oversea's.

4. How To Unlock? - When Unlocking, always use a unlock code - This method is the simplest and safest method to unlocking your phone. You can hook it up to servers, however with the design of the Blackberry we strongly prefer codes for two reasons. First, if you have a security password or IT password on your phone, you will need to remove it before unlocking. Second, using a proper unlock code, you cannot damage your phone, since there is nothing hooked up to your phone. I would suggest code is if want to pay less (take the risk of trouble) on older models. Newer Blackberry cannot be unlock by software.

5. What about a different SIM Cards? - Always make sure you know how you will get your foreign or new SIM card before you use it on another network. You can purchase it from a local store in the country you are going to use it. I suggest doing your research online, finding out which plan (pay as go most of the time) will fit you and order the SIM card for the website to mail it a address in the country of us. Buying in the store can cost up to $40, where online in many cases they will only charge you the shipping fee's (Example AT&T charges $30 in store and $6 shipped to a US address). This will save time and hassle when you get to where you will use the SIM card

6. Do You Need to Repeat Unlock Process? - If your phone is unlocked professionally it will not require a re-unlock even if you change the software. The only reason you would ever have to re-unlock it is if the hardware changes. I do get people who get codes from less trusted places, then come and ask for me to get certain features working. I cannot guarantee service since the earlier process has corrupted what I need to do, so it may not work. Get it done right immediately

7. Is Blackberry Unlock Support Needed?- When unlocking a blackberry, they are in most cases pretty simple to unlock, however it is always suggest to use a professional unlocking blackberry service (company should be registered, long standing website, have a public phone # and email), so you can get support if you need it.

8. Why Use Remote Service? - If you take this to someone to do it, you are spending your time, paying more when you do not need to. I have made the offer to over 500 people in the past few years in Toronto, Canada. Come to me, pay double and leave it with me for a couple days or do it through the Global Unlock website. If you have an issue, then come and see me. I have had 1 person see me in 500, he was a taxi driver with no email address and it took me 45 seconds to unlock his phone. DO IT YOURSELF, I encourage people not to come in and see me if they want to and almost everyone agree and it happy once they see how easy it and they are supported on the Blackberry Unlock

9. Does Network Support Unlock Blackberry? - Make sure the network you want to use the unlock Blackberry on supports Blackberry Devices. I have included a list of all Blackberry networks, I tried to take out GSM, however please douvlec check. You can find this out by checking the network website and see if they sell GSM Blackberry. If they sell GSM Blackberry, they will support all Blackberry. If they do not, call customer support and ask if they support GSM Blackberry

10. What About Data Plan? - Blackberry use special data plans called Blackberry Connect. You cannot use a regular Data Plan for Blackberry functions

Now you are ready to unlock your Blackberry, geared with all the information you need to safely unlock your Blackberry device.
