    The Search function can be your friend. I did the search for ya and found the info you need:

    http://forums.pinstack.com/f8/unlock_code_instructions_for_blackberry_cell_phones-54226/

    These are the instructions I used to unlock my wife's and my 8110's.

    Thanks! I finally found that instructions but apparently the 2 different CS at att had no idea what I asked for. They gave me the PUK number both times I called. DH is on the phone with them now getting it unlocked. It did not take this long last time. I hope it works this time.

    I was able to get the unlock codes from AT&T for free (as it should be).

    To be successful in doing this you must:

    Call ATT and tell them that you will be overseas in areas where you do not expect any AT&T coverage.
    Explain that you will be using pre-paid SIMS.
    Tell AT&T that you want to verify that they have the correct IMEI number for your phone (my wife's was wrong, since she had replaced her original phone under warranty).
    Further explain that you need the unlock code for your phone.

    They gave DH a 16 digit number but I am beginning to think it was for his old phone, which was already unlocked. After 3 tries to get att to understand what we want (first 2 times they gave me the PUK number) and down to 2 tries, we went the paid route. He actually left yesterday and we still don't have the unlock code but I hope to get it soon.

    BTW, how many tries does you normally have, I saw in several places it was like 255 but he only had 10.
