Question Will be possible to unlock the BB Bold?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm in Venezuela, I want to buy a BB and I'm considering two options:
BB 8320 GSM (I know I can find it unlocked) and BB Bold, but I don't know if it will be available unlocked.
Does any one knows if the BB Bold will be available unlocked, because if not I will buy the 8230?
Thank you.

Why of course it will. I suspect it would be available on eBay for a handsome price with in days after release.

It will not come from RIM unlocked but there are people who are licking their money hungry lips waiting to get this device in hand for unlocking.!

You will be able to unlock the Bold for use on other carriers. I doubt seriously you will be able purchase one new unlocked from a carrier, though.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 9000 has already unlocked at least one. So yes, it is possible.

Your cellphone carrier might be able to unlock it, or there are many other unlocking services around... is pretty quick, usally within 24 hours
Would it be considered sexual harassment if a midget walked up to you and said that your hair smells good?
