    Default Can T-Mobile provide an unlock code for an AT&T Bold?

    I am using a Storm 9530 at the moment and I absolutely HATE it. I had a Bold a few months back and I miss the crap out of it, I decided its the best BlackBerry for me, and the one I should have kept. So I plan on buying another in about a week or so.

    Now I am already quite familiar with the process of setting up my Bold on T-Mobile (Service Books, APN settings, etc.) but my question is; can T-Mobile unlock it? According to users "ndnoutlaw" & "xDAKx" T-Mobile can infact unlock an AT&T branded Bold.

    I dont really want to have to pay for an unlock code if I dont have to.
    So, what say you people? Is it true?

    Normally AT&T would have to provide the unlock code for that device since it was used on their network. I haven't heard of us unlocking other carrier's phones, but it could be possible. I'm not entirely sure about this.

    Why not just buy an unlock code off ebay, I got mine for about $4.00 from DrUnlock.
    iPhone to Storm to 8900 to Bold to 9700

    In the end,There will only be Keith Richards and cockroaches left.

    Each carrier has access to their own codes. Third party vendors can get it for you, but AT&T should as well if you purchased the device.

    hmm.. yeah i figured.

    Its cool, i dont mind paying for an unlock code. I just NEED to get rid of the Storm. I didnt listen to anyone when they told me to stay away from the Storm because I figured I would give it a chance, but it has been nothing but an epic fail since day one.

    I cant wait to have a Bold again!
