Default Buying a BB in USA

Please Login to Remove!

Dear All,
next month I'll have to go to US for work. I'll bring with me my 8100. I was just wondering if there will be the possibility to buy somewhere sim-unlocked blackberry. In Italy unfortunat'ly you cannot find them on the shops, but just order them calling your operator.
Any sugestions?
Thanks, Diego

They don't sell them unlocked in the stores. Your best bet is to buy it online.

But you need to be very careful that you know what you are getting. Also make sure the phone is capable of operating on the networks you need. And make sure the IMEI and PIN have been released. Otherwise, you only have a paperweight if you can't get the seller to do that for you.
