    Subsidy?

    Advertisement



    Is it the same as an unlock code? Why do they call it a subsidy code? Why don't they just call it an unlocking code? D:

    And where do I go to put in this code?

    Re: Subsidy?

    No no it's not... But the code is obtained from your carrier upon request and approval. It's an unlock code I think. You use it to unlock your phone and use it with any carrier rather than just Cingular if it's a Cingular phone and T-Mobile if it's a T-Mobile phone.

    On all iDEN phones you will get a subsidy code message if you try to put a different carriers sim in. To get the code you must find a rep that can get the code from the imei. This will only unlock the phone to use on another iDEN carrier, not on gsm.

    Im assuming its the same idea as the original poster is talking about.
