Unhappy Is My 8700g Unlocked Or Not?

Please Login to Remove!

my second hand 8700g was sold as locked, But when i checked whether it was, [Settings/Advanced Settings/Sim card/mepd] and network was listed as active. is my BB unlocked? when i insert my Tesco mobile sim card, i get "invalid sim card"

[Sorry if this has been posted before and mods are now going to eat my skin while blowtorching my nipples, but i couldn't find anything like it before this post]

blowtorch WHAT?

Yea, it's been posted. But it's your first post so you are allowed one POS post.

If ACTIVE, it is locked.

SO, if you bought off eBay, please leave appropriate feedback for the seller.
