Default Unlocked and using abroad

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I bought a Blackberry 8700C from Cingular, and I think the phone is unlocked. When I go into Advanced Settings/SIM Card, it says "Security Disabled."

Does this mean that I can just buy a SIM card overseas, plug it in, and go?

If you bought it from cingular it's probably locked. Go to Options -> Advanced -> Sim Card, and while holding alt type MEPE. If it says enter network unlock code, it's not unlocked.

Just be aware that if you're planning on using a prepaid SIM overseas that you probably won't be able to find one with BB data.
