Yes you can unlock a phone.
You contact an unlocking company like Horizon Wireless.

Also, if its a Bell Bold, its an 9700 series device, not a 9000 series device.

Please update your profile to indicate the proper model number, not name. There are different models called "Bold" and they are very different.

AT&T would not unlock my bold 9000 due to "contractual agreements". I used and received the unlock code within a couple of hours for $10. My phone is now unlocked. Easy and cheap!
