Default Cingular 7100 unlocked or not???

Please Login to Remove!

I have a cingular 7100g and would like to send it to my friend overseas in Denmark. He uses Sonofon wireless. Does anyone know if my BB is unlocked so that he will be able to use it, or is it Cingular locked? Is there some way to tell on the device itself. Of course when I asked Cingular they will not say a word.

Thanks for the help

You're right on target. The 7100g and newer 7290 from Cingular will only with with Cingular (orange) and AT&T (blue) SIM cards....
