Cingular 7290 - Unlocking by installing new OS?
I have a couple old Cingular 7290's laying around. I'm traveling to Thailand and wanted to take one with me to use w/ a Thai carrier while I'm there for the month.
Is it possible to install on the blackberry the Roger's handheld OS software or another OS on this phone so it will accept any carriers chip?
Nope, The OS does not control the Network Lock. You will have to get an unlock code either from Cingular (You really need to be a Cingular Customer) or Pay one of the unlock services for it.
cool... any other way to get the code?
Not that I know of.
like Rcbjr, said it does have to be Cingular for an unlock> Customers with international service questions
hey man, try this thread i posted. it works like a champ. CIngular will give the run around.
