I just got myself a new Blackberry Torch (AT&T) from Best Buy. Since I do not live here, I would like to unlock the phone so I am able to use it back in my home country. I had a couple of questions:
1. Will the 3G work while I am back in Spain? My carrier there is Orange. Even if 3G doesn't work, the internet can work under GSM / WiFi, correct?
2. Can someone help me with all the steps required to unlock the phone. Do I need to have any SIM card inside the phone to unlock it? Does it have to be AT&T? What is exactly the process? I've seen many websites that sell you codes for $5 or so, but not sure what I need to do to actually unlock the phone and have it work in Spain.
Many thanks in advance!
OPTIONS > DEVICE > ADVANCED SYSTEM SETTINGS > SIM CARD
You will see the lock status. Only the second one should be active (Network).
