Can you unlock a Blackberry that is not on a wireless plan?
 
Hello. My old phone is a Blackberry Bold (I have switched to an iPhone for family reasons but miss using the Bold!). I'd like to use this while I'm traveling in Indonesia as I know I can unlock it and get an int'l SIM card.

My question is...since the Bold is no longer the phone on my Verizon plan, can I still unlock it, get an Indonesian SIM card and use it as a phone while traveling? Or does it have to be an active phone on my Verizon plan?

Thanks so much for your help!

It does not need to be active.

You can find more information here How do I unlock my BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ

A lot of people do this with BB's just for the same reason.
Easy as ZombieBerry said using the FAQ's

Thanks to both of you. Actually, I just called Verizon and they did it all over the phone. They unlocked my Blackberry and they activated the international SIM on my iPhone. I'm all set. Thanks!
