    Check eBay, I bought my unlock code for about $1.50 for my storm. Hope this helps!

    Click -->HERE<-- for CellUnlock.net

    Just a site where you can buy unlock codes from. Be sure to shop around.

    I've used this site before (but I've never got one for $1.50... They are a bit more than that).

    is there any special reason you want to unlock? and you can always call your carrier and ask them for the unlock code...
    When i say i have Bold family phones, I meant it, from the older to the younger, even the unborn ;)

    Unlocking your blackberry allows you to use it on different carriers. I have a Verizon storm I unlocked so I can use it on At&t until I make the switch to Verizon. Most blackberry's have the option for a sim card so it can be used with different carriers. Another good reason, it ups the resale value if you want to cell your phone. A lot of carriers wont just give you the unlock codes, I tried a few different verizon stores, calling and asking.

    There are a plethora of ways you can get a free unlock code for BlackBerry phones. I came across a site that is running a promotion and giving away free unlock codes for BlackBerry phones, however i'm not sure I am allowed to post details here and i'm new so don't want my account deleted before i've started. If Admin/Mods confirm I can post details I will.

    Below is the link MobiFan was talking of:

    Here

    The sad thing about this promotion is that people only go there to get the free code and dont even post in the forum. Oh well long live pinstack

    If you are going to take the time to respond... take the time to actually understand that to which you are responding.

    None of the carrier stores will do it in store (they don't have access to them). The only way to get the code from the carrier is to call customer care. There are restrictions and they vary by carrier. Some only require you purchased the phone at full price, others require you be an existing customer in good standing for at least 90 days. When you call the carrier they can let you know what it takes.

    As for your storm, as I understand from the numerous people we had come in and unlock the unit in our store, VZW will not unlock it unless you are an existing customer and have been for a long time period. They also require that you be on an existing data plan. I personally have not confirmed this info but take my customers' word for it.

    That's not the site MobiFan was referring to, Jeff. We're still verifying the site.

    I meant verify in the sense that people have reported it to not be working. They're working on it.
