    It may not actually be unlocked. Go to Options, Advanced Options, Sim Card, and then type in MEPPD. It should pull up a list between the ID and Phone number. The second item in the list should be Network. If Network shows as Active then your phone isn't unlocked.

    Depends on how you purchased it. If you bought it through ebay I would fight with the seller since they sent you a unit that wasn't as described. If this was a person to person sale, I would see if he would give you your money back or the money to unlock it yourself.

    it was off ebay, the guy said it was for at&t and he said i will unlock it for anyone that needs it to be and i asked him to do so, he delayed sending it a couple days saying he was getting unlock codes. Is there like a website that anyone knows of to unlock it yourself?

    why don't you wait and save yourself the $$$ to unlock it. Most sites charge 29.99 for unlocking a BB and you still must wait at least 1 to 3 business days. I had it done via ebay for 19.99. but waited 1 business day. It depends what time of the day you purchase the unlock code on ebay. I hope this helps.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Well you can call AT&T and tell them you got it as a gift from relative that didn't know much about technology and you need it unlocked?
