    Btw I never needed to unlock a phone so that's y I'm asking. I figured they would just give him the digits on the phone?~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    No that sounds about right. I'm with TMO and when i called in they told me they would email me the code with instructions within 5 business days.
    It's a pretty quick and painless process.
    :)

    Some companies will email them right away and others take a bit longer. He could try calling them again to see if they could send it any sooner. I know they won't give them out over the phone though.

    I know I have done it with ATT and they gave it to me over the phone(had to be transferred to tech, I think). My buddy got my curve unlocked for me in only 24 hrs from T-Mob . . .hope this helps . .

    Sounds about right. When I unlocked mine with tmobile they said I'd get an email within 7days. I got it in 3 though.

    I've got kinda a dumb question. What is unlocking a phone and why would you want to do it?

    Phones are "locked" for use with a certain carrier, unlocking the phone allows you to use it on other networks...(if you have tmobile but want a phone from at&t, you'd have to get it unlocked before you could use it w/tmo). People unlock their phones for that reason or to increase the resale value on a phone. More people (users with other networks rather than only one specific network) would be able to buy your phone if its unlocked.

    Hope that makes sense...

    So a carrier like AT&T will just give you the unlock code?

    Yup they will give it to you. You have to be customer in good standing and for at least 90 days.
