    How many attemps do you get when unlocking your phone??

    I read in many forums that you can only try three attempts to unlock. If it fails the phone will become inactive. Is this true, will the phone not ever work again? Thanks

    Unlock From Password State: 10 times

    While trying to unlock from a carrier: 3 times

    Password: When you lock the device or it goes into standby and comes back out.

    Carrier: When you get an unlock code from your carrier to "unlock" the device from their services.

    But now that I am thinking about it, I don't think the 3 times on that is correct. Maybe it is. I can't remember to be honest, its been a while.

    I think the max times you have to enter the unlock code is 5. If you got it from the carrier, after the 5th time you will have to contact them to see if there is a way that you can enter it again. I think they might have to send a refurb device to you and provide the unlock code for that. Not 100% sure on that though. I do know that they tell you go call them if you can't do it after the 3rd time.

    Can you get out of the unlocking sequience at some point (say after your third unsuccessfull attempt) or do you have to follow through with it?

    I just got my code the other day from Tmo. Just wanting to get as much info as I can before I go through with it

    :cheers:
