    Unlock code: the correct IMEI?

    Advertisement



    I asked the guy who is selling the phone to give me the IMEI number, and he gave me the IMEI from the Curve's box. Is this code correct or do I have to actually go into the phone and do the *#06# thing? If it's the curve's original box, would this be correct?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Better to get it from the phone though. Sometimes people switch things around on accident and it could really cause issues.

    Well the thing is I am on a time constraint. I go to Kansas on the 18th, I get my phone on the 14th. I will also need to install a different OS (haven't found which is the best for the Curve yet) and do a whole lot of video conversions. I just want to be sure that I have the right code before I pay for an unlock service.

    as said... the safest way is to have the phone in hand -

    have him take a picture of the imei from the inside of the phone and email that pic to you - that way u can insure its the same as the code he already sent u from the box

    don't pay until you receive the device to verify it is accurate. that is my suggestion. As reddog said above sometimes things get switched out. I took my BB back to verizon for replacement and they didn't take the box so I have old box and new BB.
