Thanks for the prompt response . As far as i know the shop person didn't mentioned anything about the locked thing to me.
However how can i know if it is actually locked or not.

Here's how to find out if your BlackBerry is locked or unlocked:
OS 5.0 below:
Options > Advanced Options > SIM Card
OS 6.0 above:
Options > Device > Advanced System Settings > SIM Card
Type MEPD on the screen( You won't see those letter you typed ) .It will pop up a screen like this:
Service Provider :
If you see Activated, your BlackBerry is LOCKED. And if its Disabled, then your BlackBerry is UNLOCKED.

No not that screen . If your BlackBerry has a Sure Type keyboard then you had to double- tap the P in order to enter MEPD.
