You can determine if your Blackberry - ANY MODEL!! - LOCK STATUS
Simply, go to advanced options, SIM CARD - type mepd (meppd on pearl) then a hidden menu will open - it will list 5 locks - DISABLED -- Unlocked!

What if the status is as follows:
SIM = Disabled
Network = Active
Network Subset = Disabled
Service Provider = Disabled
Corporate = Disabled
Does it mean it is unlocked? If no, how can I unlock?

Hi, the answer is:
If NETWORK shows ACTIVE - device is locked to carrier
if NETWORK shows INAVTIVE - device is SIM Unlocked for any sim card
hope this clearedthings up

But, when I inserted a third-party SIM card, it is able read the SIM # and displays it (under Advanced Options --> SIM card).
Additionally, I looked at one of my friend's Sprint BB 8830 World Edition (which is advertised as comes SIM-unlocked).
It showed Network = Active
Thanks for your response.

OK, guys... Thanks for all the help.
I took my BB 8830 World Edition to India. It does work with local SIM card with the above status... therefore, it is unlocked.
Additionally, Alltel did send me an email saying that their BB are shipped SIM-unlocked.
