Re: Blackberry bold help!

Yes you will need to unlock it IF it is not branded to your carrier (which I doubt it will be).

I don't know anything about the IMEI required to start with 350, that would be news to me. I have read of a number Indian users buying and unlocking BlackBerrys, and have never heard of or read that.

 

You should not have any problems as long as your Indian carrier offers a BlackBerry Data Plan.

 

Good luck.
