Default Can A Pearl Bought in Canada Work Anywhere?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi! The Pearl is such a great device that carriers around the world charge an arm and a leg for it. Is it possible to buy a genuine open line (unlocked) pearl from a RIM store in Canada for use in Asia? My carrier scares me by saying the IMEI# won't match. Are open line BBPearl devices sold on an open line basis by RIM, the same way that Nokia does? If all the answers to my queries are no, then how can I have my device unlocked?
Thanks, all.
