    Can't get those for free. Sorry. Sometime, the carrier will provide the unlock code and instructions, but only if you have a valid reason and been a customer in good standing for some period.

    Otherwise, contact gsmphonesource and see what they can do and what it will cost.

    Re: unlock att curve for tmobile.

    Also be aware that unlocking is done by the phones IMEI number. If this number is found in the ATT database gsmphonesource can hook you up for under 30 bucks. If the unlock code for your phone cannot be found, it will take 50 bucks to get that code from RIM.....Good Luck! It took me 10 days to get my code because I was unlucky..and had to get it from the RIM database... hope this helps..

    Actually unlocking AT&T at www.gsmphonesource.com is only 19.99 so 20 bucks and you're set to go.

    They also have instructions.

    Good luck

    who is your carrier? AT&T or TMO?

    If it's AT&T call them up and ask for an unlock code.
    IF it's TMO then you go the site we gave you and buy an unlock code.

    only 2 options

    actually tmobile will unlock it for you as well, providing you've had an account in good standing for some time

    I called them to unlock my pearl right around this time last year. they emailed me the code and instructions pretty quickly.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I did this last night actually.

    Call and tell ATT that you are going out of the country. If they ask, say you are not using it to call to the IS, otherwise they add an international calling plan.

    Good luck!

    Re: unlock att curve for tmobile.

    Yea, I'm pretty sure that TMO will not unlock an AT&T phone. I don't think they do that. I could be totally wrong but I'm pretty sure it has to be from TMO for them to unlock it. Doesn't it?

    Also you can only do this every 90 days.

    Zoot, You can call and ask att for unlock codes, they will email you with provided unlocked codes for free. My friend did. He currently use att curve on tmobile.

    t mobile works the same way. be a customer for 3 months, call them and say you are going out of the country and want to use a forigen prepaid sim while there. they will email you the instructions and the unlock code.

    did it to my v3.

    the trick to dealing with tech support is to act like you know what you are talking about and you can get them to do anything. lvl 1 customer service/tech support are usually morons who just read from a computer screen. get them off script and they freeze up. works on all customer service... especially dell lvl 1.

    Re: unlock att curve for tmobile.

    Not to complicate matters... but, why don't u return the ATT model and get the TMobile version of the Curve... it has wifi instead of GPS and comes in a GOD awful gold color (there is also a titanium option, but no Crimson red), but other than that they are close to the same...

    with the exception of the varying carrier specific additions...

    is that not an option for you? then no unlocking is necessary
