Default Check if BB is unlocked?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to check if a Blackberry is unlocked? I'm thinking about buying a BB 7280 from the US but the seller doesn't know if it's unlocked - is there a way to check? It has AT&T branding on it.

Since we get this same question on a fairly regular basis, I though I would add a screenshot of a locked BlackBerry for reference.

Note: The ID and phone number fields have been deleted, but are normally populated with your device specific information.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!
