    Unlocking help

    Advertisement



    I called Cingular and asked for my unock code and then thought about something. I got my phone from LetsTalk.com and not from Cingular direct. Its a Cingular phone just not from a cingular store. Will this be a problem??? I'm still waiting to get the code by email and my buddy got his over the phone. What the heck????

    i think your buddy may not have remembered exactly how he got the unlock code. In most cases, you call in and they'll email it to you within 24 to 48 hours

    No its not a problem. They can do it either way. Depending on how they liked you or how you requested the code.

    Re: Unlocking help

    ok that's what I thought. I just haven't got my email yet from them and was getting impatient. He called later the same day I did but they gave him his over the phone. Wonder if I should call them if I don't see it tomorrow? My phone is on ebay and I am trying to open it up to more bidders

    In some cases, they have it available in front of them in a database, in many others they have to contact RIM for the unlock code.

    Who knows, lol..I couldn't make sense of his post either... Do you have a spam filter activated? Look through your junkmail just in case.

    Ya I gave them my sbcglobal.net address and still nothing. The only filter is the one that they have activated but I keep checking it. They said 5 days max to get it but just seems like this is taking too long.

    Re: Unlocking help

    They might have had to contact RIM for the unlock code, as I said before, which is where the maximum of 5 days comes from.

    Re: Unlocking help

    I called them and told them I have my iPhone (sorry guys had to do it) but it's not unlockable and I have to do some traveling overseas. So I asked them if they can give me my unlock code for the Pearl. The lady said sure, no problem and took down my IMEI number.

    Re: Unlocking help

    Just tell them that you are going to be traveling for work. I told her I'm a medic and I have to go teach a Prehospital Traumatic Life Support class in some other countries. The only part of that story that's true is that I'm a medic.

    From what I have seen T-Mobile is cake to get your number from after 90days of service with them.

    Indeed, 3 months/90 days of good-standing service with t-mobile, and they will give you an unlock code with no problems what-so-ever.
