    Smile Cancelled tmo account: advice for cracked screen 8700g?

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone!

    I cancelled my tmo account with my 8700g. The same day, I dropped the device and the screen is cracked.

    1) my device is still locked
    2) my data is still on the device

    I want to sell my 8700g but I want to solve my two problems above.

    I wish I could wipe the machine but I can't get to the settings application because of my broken screen. I have a long hold time on tmo and can't get my question answered: can tmo unlock my phone even though i cancelled my account this morning?

    Thanks!!!! :-/

    How long were u a customer? 3+ months and in good standing?
    If yes. Then you can get an unlock code. But, you have to be able to go to the options menu in order to unlock it (they just supply you with a code).

    As for wiping it, you can connect it to DM, then go to app loader, click all the way through till you get to "advanced" option, and then have it delete all the info there.

    Hi there. Thanks for your response. I went ahead and was able to get (finally) the unlock code. Now, my problem is getting the unlock code activated.

    To complicate matters more... (sigh)... I have a mac. The desktop application does not work on my computer, even with virtual pc.

    Thanks!!!

    Not a big Mac user here. Would pocket mac allow you to wipe the device?

    birnbad1: Hmmm... I will entertain any fair offers.


    everyone else: I now have the unlock code. Does anyone have any experience linking with ubuntu or something like that? I'd like to wipe / erase everything for resale purposes but without a screen, I don't know what to do. Thanks!
