    No, you need the unlock code for it to work with TMO

    installing the OS from another carrier will not unlock the device. It only changes the OS - think of it as going from Windows XP to Vista (whether a good or bad it's going to a different version of the same thing, Windows)

    AT&T/Cingular will provide you the unlock code for free though if you have service with them for a short while and remain in good standing with them. I did this.

    be careful with unlocking with AT&T...i had a phone with them for almost 2 years, and i added another line for my boyfriend at the time..and he got shipped to iraq, and he told me to get him an att phone because thats what worked over there, and i called att and they told me that they'd unlock it, and a month later it wasn't unlocked, because every time i called, they didn't actually send in the unlock request, and then when they finally did, my request got denied, i paid all my bills on time, and i was in good standing with them.
