    (edit:altho some of us already know that), thanks for the great post.
    Only problem the people in the USA are having is the long turn around to get their unlock codes from website :P ...
    did you get one yourself btw ?

    ^^ you are the first person i've seen who has ever reported issues. i'm sure it was a misunderstanding of some sort...

    Yeah I don't pay for them either. Just happened to want a unlocked BB Bold from their store.

    I've gotten treated better at the McDonalds near my house.

    Hi, this might be a dumb question, but, is typing MEPD case sensitive? Do I lock the caps on to do this and then alt+E to get the 2? Sorry for my ignorance and thank you for the information. cheers

    I bought my unlocked bold from a user on ebay. The phones arrive at His inventory unlocked from rogers, He never opens them and ships them directly to the buyer(me). Then you hack your browser for it to work with tmo.

    That's the same website I plan on using for my Bold.

    That is if I don't purchase
    An unlocked one of ebay.

    Should I get a locked Rogers one I will have to get the regular service.if I purchase an AT&T model I'm getting the Rush Service thru www.freeyourcellphone.com
