jail break

HELLO:

 

I am Planning on buying a Torch. I am currently with AT&T and I have no problems being with them. The problem is that since the device is locked and exclusive to AT&T, I am unable to use it when I go overseas with a DIFFERENT CARRIER. can I jail break it, then restore it back when I am home in the US. Would AT&T have any problems with this, would they know that its been Jail broken?

?

Re: jail break

There's no such thing as 'jailbreaking' a BlackBerry.

 

You simply want to get it "unlocked for use on a carrier other than ATT".

Sometimes, ATT will provide that code for you free, if you tell the, you are traveling internationally, and you have an active account with them in good standing for more than 90 days.

 

 

To puchase a low cost unlock code, check out BlackBerry
Unlocks


If you need instructions on how to unlock your BlackBerry for use on a

carrier other than the one to which it is branded read this link for instructions.

 

When you come back, you can use it on ATT again, no problem, they won't care that it has been unlocked.

Absolutely.

 

Unlocking the device does NOT hinder nor change any function or feature or software on the device.
