    I called TMo customer service, made up some kind of BS story about travelling abroad and 24h later got the unlock code in email from TMo.

    Here's the seller I used to unlock my phone. I trust them, check their feedback. I don't have any affiliation to these guys btw. http://myworld.ebay.com/cellunlocknet

    I called BB tech support to get unlock code for my 8100. They claimed only Rogers can unlock. I heard Rogers does not provide unlock codes. Also checked ebay for unlock service and they require 5-10 days to send unlock code. I was wondering how they generate an unlock code from your IMEI.

    I emailed T-Mobile and had an unlock code in about 24 hours. FWIW, I've been a T-Mo customer for a little over a year but have only had the Pearl a couple of weeks.

    carriers can only get the unlock code for thier phones.if you got the phone somewhere else you have to request the unlock code from the carrier the phone is branded to.

    Everyone is saying Rogers will not give out unlock codes(yes, mine is Rogers branded). The people offering unlocking services all have different timeframes to get the code to you...24 hours, 2-3 days, 5-10 days. Seems like there is one person out there able to generate unlock code for the 8100 and all the dealers are buying from him/her.

    When a carrier purchases the phones from the manufacteror there is a system on the back end of the manufacterors warehouse that scans the imei numbers and associates the correct unlock code for the device. If the carrier loses, misplaces or just cannot find the unlock code they poll that system to reprint out the unlock code. These other places do more or less the same thing.

    Re: Unlocked my Pearl today!

    cingular/att just gave me my unlock code and instructions. I called them and they told me I had to "apply" for the unlock code. I asked to apply and they said "okay", but never told me what the requirements were, they just asked why (I told them the truth: I travel out of the country and have a sim card with an Argentine carrier that I prefer to use when I am in Argentina). 2 days later they called me to give me the code.

    How do these "other places" get the unlock codes from the manufacturer? When I called Blackberry tech support, they claimed they don't have unlock codes, only the providers do.

    I travel overseas a lot too and while I had my 8700c, I called Cingular International (Washington state, lol) and they gave me the unlock code right over the phone. The lady stayed on the line until it worked and the next day I was in the sand box making sand castles.

    Sorry to hear that you had to pay to unlock it. But if it works, it works... enjoy!

    As stated earlier, it allows you to use any carrier if you are out of your local service area.
