Is it locked on a network?

I assume it is locked by T-Mobile.

What exactly does it mean "the device does not require activation with T-Mobile?"

Some people sell devices at a discount BUT then require you to active service thru them. I am just selling the device without requiring a contract to be signed No strings attached. This makes it very convenient for people who already have service with T-Mobile and for people who need new service, they just need to contact T-Mobile or an agent directly.

Only Cingular Blackberry's come unlocked out of the box. Wish other carriers would follow suit on this practice. Sure would make getting a deal on a Blackberry much easier!

I have been told that T-Mobile will provide the unlock codes upon request.

T-Mobile will offer unlock code after around 60-90 days of use, if you have a valid contract and the account is in good standing.
