    Which is the best unlock service?

    Advertisement



    Hi, finaly will get my 1st BB by end of this week. It's a sim-locked Curve 8320 from my provider Turkcell/Turkey. I want to unlock it as i travel a lot to Europe and hv 2 simcards fm german and french providers. Turkcell will not give me the unlock code at the moment. Therefore im trying to find out which the best and trustworthy service is. Can anybody tell about his experiences? Thx.

    That's good to know -- have you, or people you know, tried GSM Phone Source ?

    I tried them. I didn't like them. I use UnlockBlackBerry.org they are really friendly and very helpful.

    Re: Which is the best unlock service?

    Long time customers in good standing can typically request the subsidy unlock code from their wireless service provider for free.

    If you're a new customer and bought the phone with a big discount by entering into a 1-2 year contract then sometimes your provider will delay or not give you the unlock code fearing that you will transfer service to another provider.

    If you bought/use a phone that is not sold/supported by your service provider then they might not be able to generate the unlock code and you need to pay a 3rd party unlocking service.

    If/when you get an unlock code be very careful if for some reason it does not work the first time. I think you only get 10 unsuccessful tries before the phone security kicks in and locks you out.

    For what its worth in the few times that I have seen posts here on PS where stackers (pretty much all overseas) had problems with gsmphoneosource and I beleive all received refunds. I have seen them referenced here many times.

    I've read good reviews about http://www.gsmphoneunlocks.com/main.sc I haven't tried them myself yet but, they do have a money back guarantee. I wouldn't try one without it.

    CB...Make sure you post back and let us know who you use to unlock and how it works out! BTW after reading your OP I am not sure I would suggest gsmphonesource as I see the phone is from Turkey..as I said have not seen a lot of success with them and non US carriers. Here is a stacker that had posted last month advertising world wide service - you may want give them a look. I beleive they have a web page as well.
