Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,

I'm going to buy a bold without contract. Do I need to unlock her to use for other carrier?
Is it difficult to buy an AT&T without a contract?
Thanks!

Yes you would have to unlock it. Use HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center to do so.

Yes you need to unlock it if you plan on using it with another GSM provider.

Ask your provider sometimes they will unlock the phone for you for a small charge or for free. But all BB can be unlocked from GSM provider and you will have to do that to get it to read another providers SIM card.
