    New Here :)

    Advertisement



    Hey everyone,

    Im new here and am new the the BB scene in all...

    My aunt gave me a bb that she came across and said she didnt want it...

    I said well thats fantastic.. but how am i gunna use it locked to cingular when i have prepaid tmobile

    Oh well..

    So ive been reading and researching ways to unlock the phone...(as in googlin)

    and i havent really found anything solid, and apparently nothing related to unlocking is free...

    So does anyone know of a legitimate way of unlocking your bb?

    Is newmobilefreedom Legitmate

    They have a remote unlock service for 14.99 that needs you to install software and what not.

    I downloaded the apploader from the official blackberry site and it updated my fw... not sure if that was the smart thing to doo..

    Just looking for a solid way to unlock my phone.. i want a nice phone instead of that stupid tmobile to go phone >.<

    I know a lot of people use

    www.gsmphonesource.com

    I used them earlier this week for my new Curve. They take paypal or CC.

    Not sure if you will be able to get a data plan with a Prepaid TMO phone.

    Anyways Welcome to the Family and Pinstack!!

    Let us know if you have more questions

    yup they just need your model number and IMEI

    just double check that they do your model.

    the turn around is amazing i order at 6 pm got my code at 11 pm

    they are awesome!
