    Unlock code?

    Advertisement



    I've heard of plenty of people getting their blackberries unlocked, but with my usual luck I've tried 2 different places and both have come back with code not found!

    I'm not sure what the problem is. I purchased both phones in the USA (T-mobile branded). These are reputable places and I received a refund, but that doesn't help me use my 8220! (one offers the service guaranteed for BB for double the price and takes 15 days.... I don't want to wait that long or pay that much!)

    Can anyone recommend a place that can get it done? Please????

    For the 8220 you might have to pay that much & wait that long. At this moment since it's so new.

    Just call TMO - if you've had service with them for long enough (I think it is 3 months?) then they will give you the code for free.

    I think it's 6 months & you have to be in Good Standing.

    I'm not a T-Mobile customer, hence wanting to get the phone unlocked. I don't mind paying the money, it's more the wait that's bugging me! I don't know if I can last 15 days!

    I'm on vacation in Europe. I called T-Mobile and mentioned it, and they of their own accord emailed me the unlock code and instructions.

    gritsinct, call TMO even tho you're not a customer, and ask for PDA support. They're pretty good about helping and may give you the unlock code. Or don't you know anyone on TMO?

    If you have a friend with T-Mobile then you are set. I am no longer an employee of T-Mobile and I switched carriers, unlocked a couple phones before leaving but forgot about one of my 8800's. I tried to get them to unlock it but they refused. Remembered that my parents have a T-Mobile account. I called them using their account last night and woke up to the unlock code and instructions in my email.

    T-Mobile got PWNT

    Thanks for the input. I tried calling T-mobile but they wouldn't do anything. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone with T-Mobile - the only person I knew with them just switched to Verizon...
