Default Factory Unlocked vs Carriers Unlocked?

Please Login to Remove!

What is/are the different between those unlocked? (I mean, some phones come w/out any carrier brand on it( factory unlocked ) Versus the one that come with the brands (t mobile, Cingular/AT T...etc..)?
In my opinion there is the same but tell me Iam wrong and please give me the explaination. Also, is that true some carriers ( Cingular..etc) they Locked their sim card? So, another word, we can't use that Locked sim card on any phones except from their own carrier.
Thank you.

There is no difference. VERY few BlackBerrys come unlocked from the factory, and those are often demo and evaluation devices. RIM does not sell devices direct to the public, so it is quite difficult (for the common person) to get an unlocked factory direct device.
