A BlackBerry PlayBook unlocked should work on any GSM phone networks. To unlock a BlackBerry PlayBook you will probably need an unlock code, which you can often get for free from your phone carrier or service provider. As long as you have a PlayBook that runs off a SIM card (which according to the BlackBerry PlayBook specs it does) the instructions below should help unlock your RIM device. Most GSM or SIM based mobile devices come with a SIM lock which prevents them form working with unaccepted carriers. The unlock code should remove the SIM lock on your BlackBerry PlayBook.
In order to get a BlackBerry PlayBook unlock code, I would first contact your phone carrier’s support line and request one. Sometimes they will give you one for free and in exchange will need your BlackBerry PlayBook’s IMEI number. You can get this number simply by entering *#06# on your phone’s keypad and then pressing enter. If you cannot attain a free BlackBerry unlocking code, then you should review some of the unlock code websites I have provided below.
You should now be able to use your unlock code and the steps below to fully unlock your BlackBerry PlayBook to other carriers. Enjoy!
