    Help with phone unlock

    Advertisement



    Hi I don't know if I can post this here but here it is. My problem is this I requested a unlock code for my bb curve from tmobile and will get it later tonight but they say it will only unlock the phone if it has the foreign country sim in it. Is this true? I thought the phone unlock code would unlock it regardless of what sim was in it. Can someone please enlighten me.

    Not that I can tell! I had a buddy who uses TM request mine for me with their customer service department/ BB techs and less than 24hrs later I am able to use it on ATT with no problems whatsoever! If you have been with them for a few mos they should not give you any grief over it! I even got another one unlocked from ATT the same way, but didn't have to wait the 24hrs, they transferred me to a tech and he gave it to me ust like that. If you are changing carriers you might want to be sure you gt the correct service books dl'd to yourr device. I had an issue with the second unlock, until they sent e the correct service books! Hope this helps . . feel free to reply with any Q:s or pin me.

    Yes, it is directly tied to your IMEI.

    Yeah it is something, as stated, tied directly to your IMEI and carrier. Only the carrier who owns the IMEI can unlock it unless your go thru a third party and pay for it.
