Sprint Bold 9650 Factory Unlocked Out of the Box
In case you missed it in David's BlackBerry Bold 9650 review, a very cool feature of the new device is that is comes factory unlocked right out of the box. This means no more scrounging for unlock codes if you want to use the 9650 on another carrier. You will be able to use EDGE on North American GSM carriers as well as 3G providing the carrier supports the proper frequencies. Simply put - this means if you are on a GSM carrier and want to use the Bold 9650 from Sprint, you just need to pull it out of the box, pop in your SIM and you're good to go. Makes things much easier for international traveling. Although the yet to be seen Bold 9650 for Verizon is essentially the same device, it is highly doubtful it will boast the same feature.
