Default 8707V Upgrade Quiries :S

Please Login to Remove!

Firstly, Hello everyone, Im new so Hey!. Ok, I have a Blackberry 8707v which was originally on Vodaphone, but is unlocked and being used on Orange UK. I want to upgrade the OS on the phone to the latest release but i am worried the phone will be no longer unlocked after a upgrade.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks

Once a phone is unlocked, it can't be relocked. Upgrading the OS will not lock the phone.

Welcome to the forums.

Once a device is unlocked, it's permanently unlocked. Upgrading the OS will not lock the device.
