    Unlock code

    Advertisement



    I did a bit of searching but found conflicting answers. I got an unlock code from att for my bb. My gf has the same one and I want to unlock hers to tmobile. Will my unlock code unlock her curve or are they imei specific?

    they are imei specific - she can try with t-mobile or try an unlocking service.

    She purchased a 8310 from att and plans to use it with tmo. Since it has not been activated with att will they still allow me to get an unlock code from them as I did for mine?

    I dunno what att's policy is on unlock codes honestly. I thought you had to have an account in good standing in order to get the code, but I haven't tried.

    If you paid full retail for the 8310 then you can get a code. IF you got it from a deal or something they will not help.

    Your code for your BB will NOT work.

    When I unlocked my pearl my account was out, and they didnt have any trouble unlocking it for me. I was the primary account holder and had the correct information.

    Try a different rep, or email them. If you have been with them for at least 90 days and are in good standing then there should be not reason for them to deny you.

    Also their roaming service does not apply she's full of crap

    Re: Unlock code

    Yeah reddog is right. If you tell them that you are unlocking it for business use, they are supposed to just help you with it. They will try to sucker you into purchasing their international bb plan or something like that, but tell them that you will as soon as you are ready to leave and that you will do that online. That always works. It will make them shuddup.

    Re: Unlock code

    Just called them about five minutes ago. I told the rep that I was planning on taking a different blackberry of mine to thailand and that I had called earlier thinking that all unlock codes were universal. She took my new imei that I gave her and processed the info. I'll be getting an email in a few days with the new unlock code.
