It's one of those questions that always seems to pop up. "How do I unlock my BlackBerry" along with, "What does unlocking my BlackBerry do for me?" Well, since we have a new round of BlackBerry 7 devices making it into retail locations we figured it was high time we did a brief video explaining the why's and how's of the process.

This video is applicable to all new devices, and most older devices as the unlocking procedure for BlackBerry smartphones for the most part remains unchanged. If you all have any further questions, drop some comments below or head on into the CrackBerry forums and check out our BlackBerry unlocking forums -- chances are, you're question has already been answered in there. Quick note on the settings after unlocking: When your device is unlocked everything will say "Disabled", not "Active".
