Default How can I tell if my BB is unlocked?

Please Login to Remove!

I searched for and found a thread on this topic, but it is two years old and closed, so I'll post my question here. I checked the BlackBerry FAQ and found instructions and screenshots there that I thought would answer my question, but the results on my 7520 don't match either of the results explained (How do I determine if my BlackBerry is "unlocked"? - BlackBerryFAQ

In the FAQ, it says that if the BB is locked, it will show the Network as ACTIVE, and if unlocked it will show as DISABLED. On my 7520, it shows as UNKNOWN.

Yesterday, a couple of members talked me through the process of wiping the program and reinstalling the OS. Is this why it shows as UNKNOWN? I bought this unit at the swapmeet, so I don't have any idea what its history is.

Is it locked, or not?
