The reason for buying the BB from the US is that it is available at a cheaper price.
Please let me know..
How much is the price differential?
Remember - the BB's in the US are carrier subsidized and hence the differential. And I would recommend unlocking it in the US - tell the service provider you want to unlock it for international travel which often works - I have seen too many instances of phones being bricked becoz of amateurs that pose as 'gurus' of the mobile world..
Should you get it unlocked from the store or even online, then I suggest using a SIM card different from the one you were provided with, to check for any incompatibility issues..
Which model are you looking to buy? I have the Curve, but am looking to upgrade to the Bold when I get a half chance..
