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.

Thanks!

Find your sim card under options....---type MEPD

If network is active...it's locked.

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