SIM-lock in original packed SIM-lock-free Bold9900

Hi All


I bought a original packed SIM-lock-free Bold9900 and discovered that it is a German Telekom locked device. How can this be ? As a Vodafone customer this Bold9900 is completly useless - Vodafone cannot connect my Bold9900 and I see the T of Telekom


Why does RIM not have a quality assurance ? All my friends - most of them are not iPhone fans - are laughing about me because I am / was stil a Blackberry fan.

Hello Albert and welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.


Sorry to hear you are experiencing issues with your BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900 smartphone.


You will need to contact your point of sale to investigate this matter further as they are better able to assist with the SIM unlock process.


Hope this answers your question.
