To unlock your BlackBerry for use on a carrier other than the one to which it is branded, you will need to purchase the unlock code from a vendor. A couple reputable ones advertise on this site--such as gsmphonesource.com.
If you have a good record with your carrier and good credit, they might do it for you for free, ask.
A new OS will not unlock it.
