    Question Question Cannot unlcok my AT&T Blackberry Curve!

    Advertisement



    this is crazy ! i recently bought my Blackberry Curve on eBay. it is locked to AT&T. even though it wasn't in original packaging the phone was new (plastic on the screen and everything). anyways, since then i have been trying to unlock it with about 5 different firms with reputable feedback but no one was able to unlock it. i start to suspect that there might be some lock which cannot be unlocked or something. did anyone have the same problem? can you share some tips.

    any tips and suggestions are greatly appreciated!!! thank you!!!

    Have you tried http://www.gsmphonesource.com ?
    They claim to be able to do it for the Curve locked to AT&T. What kind of answers are you getting from unlocking firms? They just say they can't do it, or did you actually get an unlock code and it isn't working when entered?

    thank you for such a quick reply! gsmsource could not find unlock code either. they offered me another option to unlock it through RIM it costs $50 and takes 7 days. the thing is that i called to RIM to inquire about that a little more. customer service rep told me that firstly, they don't offer unlocking for blackberrys and secondly, he was not able to find this blackberry on their system. then just in case, he checked other system and found it with the status showing that it supposed to be in their warehouse waiting to be replaced for some other broken blackberry.

    The easiest thing to do is give the IMEI to a freind with AT&T service, have them call cust service and get the unlock code that way...thats the only sure fire way to get the correct code.
    If you want, PM me the IMEA and I'll see what I can do....

    there-in lies the reason I NEVER buy from E-bay...and no, RIM never gives out unlock codes to customers. Those codes are only available to carriers and websites that specialize in unlocking devices.

    Re: Question Cannot unlcok my AT&T Blackberry Curve!

    LOL! I agree with jedd206... RIM has all of its codes on "lockdown" that there is no way of obtaining any helpful info to unlock ur phone... Even if u do go through AT&T, u have to literally pass a series and questions and they investigate everything!! Ur best bet is to have someone with ATT service, make sure they have a history of traveling international while using ATT service... Otherwise, they won't do it for u! BE CAREFUL though, they also try to sell u international rates (for using ur phone overseas) and try to say that it is necessary to unlock ur phone... ITS NOT!!! LIES! ALL LIES!!! Just say NO!


    PS- I'm married to jedd206!!.. No joke

    then your opinion and thoughts are biased then!

    I thought AT&T wont give you unlock codes if you arent a customer with them.
