    Yes, tkgeek, its a GSM carrier, and they don't seem to be to keen to unlock my phone. However, I don't think its illegal to unlock a phone here, since I bought it without a service plan (which came seperately).

    Gotcha. Here cell carriers have to honor an unlock request by law. Though, I'm not sure how to go about finding a place to unlock your device in India. Good Luck.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Looks like I need that luck! Will someone tell me more about the legal position in USA (my email: dilipchaudhary@yahoo.com) so that I could petition the Telecom Regulator here in India?

    I will be unlocking my Cingy Pearl as soon as I can, I would like to sell it when a cooler one comes out. Whenever that may be.
    I unlocked my cingular pearl 2 days after purchase and my tmobile pearl 3 weeks after purchase. Both for free, codes directly from the cingy and tmo.

    Congrats on the unlock.

    Re: I just got my pearl unlocked!!! Yessssssssssssss!!!

    Hm.. either I do not understand how it works or there is something else..
    I got *unlocked* T-Mobile Pearl online but it doesn't recognize my cards from two other providers.. First thought was - it is not unlocked... I checked SIM card menu with meppd code it showed me:

    SIM - Disabled
    Network - Active
    Network Subset - Disabled
    Service Provider - Disabled
    Corporate - Disabled

    Looks like it is locked.. right? Cause in my other ulocked BB 7105t Network is Inactive..

    That is the benefit. Other than that it will help your resale value.

    I will be moving out of US soon and need to be able to use at least 3 carriers because coverage zone may be very different for all three... so to be online I will have to swap SIM cards sometimes..

    You can pay for the code, or you can call your service provider and tell them that you are traveling out of the country and that you need them to send you an unlock code. Good luck, it's super easy though so you probably won't need the luck

    Thumbs up Re: I just got my pearl unlocked!!! Yessssssssssssss!!!

    Well mate....you can contact the service provider from where you bought the phone originally...for e.g. i am presently in USA and i bought blackberry Pearl 8100 and now i had finished my job in USA and does not want to give the phone back!! ( well such a nice phone who will give it back) . just contact the support officer and ask them that i want to go to India ( or any other place you wanna go) for some days and i don't want to purchase a new phone in india so i want an unlock code...kindly mail me ( give your mail address). they will send you the whole instructions. just do it>>> and Yipeeeeeeee...your phone is unlocked ... i know it's illegal but what to do...just dont tell them that you are going permanently to other place otherwise they will send the phone bill....and you know it's about 550$ service TAX extra...
