    Cingular workers?

    Advertisement



    i want to get a dash until my "phone guy" can get me a good price on the curve. i called Cingular to see is they would give me an unlock code so i can use the dash on cingy service. i was told that it wasn't supported. If i pay someone to unlock the phone will it work on Cingular service? i was under the impression that they had to unlock the phone.

    Cingular is required to unlock phones they sell for their customers. The Dash is a T-Mobile exclusive device. Theoretically if you get the unit unlocked it will work fine on Cingular but you have to get the data settings updated so you can use the internet and send picture messages.

    So you're saying I should be able to call at&t and they will unlock my Curve?

    Yes perl, you should be able to get your curve unlocked. Kwy, T-Mobile may not unlock the dash if you are not a customer, it all depends on the rep that takes the call from what I have heard from others.

    As for the data settings, not sure if they can be manually modified like on an unlocked OEM phone once the Dash is unlocked. You might try Cingular/at&t and see if they have the settings to be able to send them for OTA programming (although in my experience they are less than helpful usually when involving an unlocked non-OEM phone). If the settings can be modified, you will probably want to get them from an 8125 since an 8525 is a 3g phone and may have different settings than the 8125. Once the settings are programmed into the phone you can add the data plan and actually be able to use it.
