Default Un-locked?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all!
Been awhile!!! I have a question...what does it mean when someone says the BB is un-locked? I really want the Bold, but I have Sprint. Does the un-lock mean I can use it on Sprint's network?

When you unlock a BB you can use it on a 'like' network. So a Bold from AT&T can be unlocked and used on T-Mobile or Rogers Wireless.

Sprint and AT&T are 2 different network types (CMDA vs. GSM), so the devices cannot be used on each others networks.
