Can i download an unbranded os for my blackberry and flash it so it wouldn't be locked to cingular anymore
Re: Is there A way
It seems you just want to get the bb unlocked so that you can use it with any other gsm wireless carrier.
You dont need to download an os. You just need the sim subsidy unlock (it is a number) and the procedure to put it in the device. Most service providers do give it out. I know for sure that tmobile does if you have been their customer for more than 3 months and bought the bb from them.
If you can get it from cingular then you can simply get it off ebay. You need to give the vendor the imei no of the device which can be found by dialing *#06#. Please be aware that this procedure carries a risk. The device can permanently get locked if you put in the imei incorrectly more than 3 times. So I suggest you check up with cingular first.
