My question is what implications are there? There might be, confirm the Vodafone uses the same GSM signal as T-Mobile ie 900/1800/1900 etc.
Can 7100's be unlocked? Should be able as my wife uses a 7100t from T-Mobile here in Canada on the Rogers network, you'll have to see if unlocking is available for the 7100v? So for only Bongowireless www.bongowireless.com in Canada has been able to fully voice/data unlock BB at a cost of 100US per.
Can we put the T-Mobile theme onto them so they are the same (except for badges as those we got from T-Mobile)? Yes, my wifes 7100t has the Rogers, T-Mobile and Vodafone theme on it.
Has anyone even tried this?
