    How do you unlock the 7100g so you can use a local SIM card in foreign countries? I have Cingular service.

    Try this...

    To Unlock:

    1. On the Home screen, click the Tools icon. The Options screen appears.

    2. In the tools screen, select the Settings icon.

    3. Scroll to SIM Card and select it. You should see the phone number and the SIM ID number.

    4. Type 'meppd' to display the first five levels of SIM locking. T-Mobile uses network locking so the Network should display Active. All other states should display Disabled

    5. Type 'mepp2' to display the dialog box asking for the unlock code (Press the Alt + 2 key to get the number 2)

    6. Input the SIM Unlock code (16 digits provided by carrier - Tell them you are traveling and need it.)

    7. Press ENTER and reboot handheld.

    Thanks for the response, but two problems:

    1. There is no tools icon on my 7100g menu
    2. Cingular refuses to give me the code
