    unlock your phone for free!

    Advertisement



    So yesterday I called up tmobile and told them that I was going on vacation and will be leaving the country for a few days. I asked them if they could please tell me my unlock code. They gladly helped me out and told me that they were going to put in a request for a unlock code. And ad promised I revived my unlock code via email less than 24 hours later. The min requirments are that you need to have been a tmobile subscriber for at least 90 days, other than that thee are no requirements.

    Thanks for reading my story, and enjoy your unlocked blackberry.

    Thanks for sharing your success on this Btthus. It's good to see the carriers loosening up a little bit.

    I think they were forced to loosen up.

    No. There is no law telling them to unlock phones. It is only their good will.

    If u were to sell your phone on ebay or some, u'd get a better deal since it's unlocked. Also it allows you to choose and work with diff carriers and in diff countries.

    there was law passed to tell carriers to unlock phones. tmobile is the only one actually working to to do it. cingular and verizon arent doing it.

    "Late last month the U.S. Copyright Office issued rules that address this second situation. Carriers, for at least the next three years, will no longer be allowed to “lock” your phone to prevent the device from being used on another carrier’s network."

    Actually, I just talked to cingular to get my unlock code and they are sending it to me. I have only had the phone for about 2 weeks and they didnt ask any questions, just said they would put the request through and I would receive an e-mail in a couple days.

    Question Re: unlock your phone for free!

    Anyone tried this without first being a customer? Ex: Purchase a t-mobile phone from ebay then call t-mobile to unlock it?

    Based on this w w w.copyright.gov/fedreg/2006/71fr68472.h t m l it seems that they are suppose to unlock it. No?

    Re: unlock your phone for free!

    If I unlock my phone, will that allow my Bluetooth to send and recieve from other handsets? Everytime I try to connect and send via Bluetooth it always fails. Is this a setting by T-Mobile so I cannot share ringtones or something?

    Wish it was that way here, Canadian providers seldom provide unlock codes, and if they do, there is a hefty fee. Sometimes up to 300 bucks.

    Hopefully in the future we'll see some of our providers follow suit.
