Re: Cant use Blackberry 8300 in Bangladesh

BlackBerry built carrier specific devices. Almost every carrier have these device locked to network. Meaning a device from one carrier won't work in other network/country. What you're face after inserting SIM is the reason of that. You can purchase unlock codes from GSM Phone Source or Unlock BlackBerry. But again carriers follow a policy where you can have BlackBerry services only if you avail their bundled package. Moreover, if your carrier is not allowed to have a specific device from RIM and you purchase an unlocked device from else where and somehow you become able to use then your carrier will not be able to provide after sales support for that particular device as they don't have it in their portfolio.
