I've just switched carriers as I've moved to Barbados, but when i try to activate the data on my phone with the new sim, it says the phone is incompatible with the service.
I was advised by the new carrier to cancel the old data plan (which was prepaid so i had just forgotten about it) and to try again. It's still not working... someone help me please! '
Could it be that the phone isn't unlocked for data?

The BlackBerry doesn't just need to be removed from their plan, they need to provide you a code to unlock the SIM, which will allow you to use your BlackBerry on other networks.

The phone was purchased unlocked. So i'm wondering if this means that activating a carrier's plan locks your blackberry? As far as i can see, in options > device > advanced > sim card,
network subet disabled
service provider disabled
corporate : disabled
Meaning the phone is unlocked right?
This begs the question, how do you check if the phone is data locked?
