    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.

    my boy came over to tmo from ATT with his bold....tmo pda support unlocked and set up his phone for him over the phone. he said he prefers his phone now on tmo
    If you were to port your bold onto T-Mobile, you'd have to unlock it, via code you could get from either T-Mobile, or from AT&T (if you asked nicely I suppose.)

    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.

    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.

    will AT&T provide the code even though i dont have service with them? i plan on purchasing a new Bold at the off contract price.

    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!
