    T-Mobile service to Cingular?

    Advertisement



    Hey I have a T-Mobile Blackberry Pearl and I want to see if I can get service with my Cingular.

    I have put my sim card in but all I get is INVALID SIM CARD. Is there any way around this?

    Also you can ask TMO they will do it for free if you have been with them for 90 days or longer.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~look around on the net for unlocking 8100. Its been a while since ice had to do it but its easy enough. I've got a tmobile pearl on Cingular.

    If you are not a Customer of TMO and you have a TMO Pearl then you will need to use a third party unlocking service. You will have to pay.

    @Texas yes, you can call them up and just tell them you want to get your phone unlocked. Of course the 90 day rule and you account has to be in good standing...all that junk. But yes they will do it for free.

    There was a law passed a few years back that said providers don't have the right to keep the phone locked if you want to switch providers.
