Default Confused about UNLOCKING in BB 9700

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
This is my first post in the forum and my question might seem to be silly or rather stupid to many. I reside in UAE and I know a person who is selling out BB at a price of 1300dhms which is 600dhms lesser copared to ones sold at stores. It is a genuine one and not the chinese street hawker version.The issue here is he says it is factory unlocked to all the service providers but the BB messenger service is not unlocked and CANNOT be unlocked. What's the logic behind that? I mean unlocked for all network providers but BB messnger service not unlocked. Is there a way werein you can only unlock the network provider and keep the BB messenger service locked? If so, is there a way you can unlock it. I don't wana get the stuff and then keep it for life only coz there is no BB msngr and no one would care to buy.

Edit: What exactly is BB messenger? I have read that BB messenger is usually used to communicate btwn 2 BB phones. PLs correct me if I am wrong.
If the BB messenger service is locked, does it mean that I will not be able to use applications from the service provider like FACEBOOK n stuffs. I am not plannign to get the services from the service provider as of now, but if want to use the features from the service provider like FACEBOOK will I be able to use that with BB messenger service locked..
