About to buy a 7100 series but the owner states:
A few things about the handset - It has not been registered with Blackberry and when i had checked the IMEI number with Vodaphone they claimed it is simlocked to Sweden.
You have to contact Vodaphone in Sweden to get this unlocked and registered etc. I do not have the time - If you put a Vodaphone sim card in it it will come up with Invalid SIM and will not allow you to use the functionality or make any calls etc because it needs registering with Rim/Blackberry & Via a Vodaphone dealer (Sweden).
I do not know much about the Blackberry system so am unable to tell you the processes in getting this registered or unlocked.
Is this the case? Is it necessary to register the device with RIM/BLACKBERRY? Or can I just get it sim unlocked?
