Default Brand new Blackberry user! Be gentle!

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, i'm not sure if i'm even posting in the correct forum but I have recently bought a second hand Blackberry 8520 curve!
Nice little bit of kit!

My question is though, can I unlock it onto 02uk ? It's currently on ORANGE.
Sorry if this is against the rules.
Any help will be much appreciated!
Thanks

Yes, it can be unlocked from O2 to Orange. O2 could do it for free IF you have an active account with them.

If not, contact one of the unlock vendors. I recommend Horizon Wireless, see the link in my signature below.

What would I have to do?
I will check your link out, thanks

Call them and simply ask. You want the unlock code.

Wait, you must ask the carrier to which the device is branded. O2 cannot unlock an Orange device.

The man speaks the truth. I would call Orange, and never mind that you're not their customer.
