    Can anyone suggest a good current site to get the unlock code for a UK O2 8310 unlocked, please?
    The phone was my employers, they have liquidated sadly I want to try and keep the phone, but O2 will not want me to have the unlock code as the phone was less than a month old when the business closed!
    My other option but VERY! costly is if i call O2 and try and port the number and account to me personally, all I want is to be able to use the phone and not have to re-build my entire phonebook onto another phone as I can't really afoard an new BB



    Many thanks
    Derek
    Pm Me, I think I might be able to help you in the o2 UK unlock.
    Thx

    Yes, and for BB most of the time you can get it free. No need to pay anyone.

    I have a 8330m from ntelos (sprint network) if I unlock will I be able to get internet when I roam? currently I cannot get internet from home, but it works in town. they said it was because I was roaming on another system. Also under advanced options, I don't see a selection for sim only:
    application
    browser
    browser push
    default services
    GPS
    Host Routing Table
    Maps
    Service Book
    Wireless Update

    Thanks

    CDMA Phones (Sprint, VZW, Alltel, etc.) do not have SIM cards and cannot be unlocked in this way.

    How to unlock your mobile phone for free -- very easy, even for me a self-confessed technophobe:

    All mobile phones you get from att, verizon, etc are configured to work only on their own network. This is just one of many ways the companies protect their existing revenue streams by making it difficult for you to switch carriers (in spite of the reality that mobile service is really an undifferentiable commodity like gasoline or 2% milk). You might remember that you used to be unable to keep your mobile number when switching carriers - another old tactic in the dirty unseemly playbook.

    If you're off your mobile contract and shopping for a cheap 3rd party carrier, or planning to be overseas and want to be able to use your phone for local calls w/ the local phone rates <much cheaper than att international service as an example> then unlocking your phone could be for you.

    This is a VERY easy process if you are under age 50. Simply take the following steps:

    STEP 1. pop open your phone and remove the battery to find the IEMI number printed on the label <on most phones you could also access the IEMI number in 'options'>
    .............................
    STEP 2. email your carrier < here is the email I sent to ATT 2 days ago at the att contact page on their website:>

    Q2:What is the make and model of the phone you're asking about?

    from my old phone:
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Thanks!
    ...............................

    STEP 3: wait 24 to 48 hours for a response from your carrier (in my case ATT)

    Very Important.
    3. Select Settings, then Options and then select Advanced Options.

    Hi everyone, I just want to say thanks to everyone for their posts.

    I lost my BB-8900 and a friend offered me a 8310 (AT&T)that she wasn't using. I am under contract with T-mobile, so it would only help me if i could get it unlocked. After surfing the forum and reading a gazillion pages, i got all the guidance that i needed to unlock it and puufff!
    I have a phone again.

    Thanks to everyone!

    Ps. I did need to have an AT&T sim card and shift-MEPE worked best for me.

    I just bought a bb 8320 on ebay and its locked to tmobile but i'm not in the US and i need to get it unlocked. I've read pages upon pages about getting my phone unlocked but i haven't seen a case like mine.

    Since i'm not, never was and never will be a tmobile subscriber, if i call to get the unlock code for my phone, will they still give it to me? I know they will ask for a phone number but i'll just say i dont have one right now but will i only need the IMEI number or will i need information about the previous owner who bought the phone from t-mobile?

    please help asap...

    I just replied to your other post.

    I just used UniquePhones.com to get my Storm unlock codes. They emailed my codes within 5 minutes. I have at&t, but the Storm was locked to VZW. It was fast, and easy. All they need is the IMEI code.

    Good Luck

    I wanna do the free unlocking by calling T-Mobile but i was jus wondering what information i`d need given my case. I checked ebay and they cost way less than these other sites that charge. i`ve bought alot of stuff on ebay so i was thing that if T-mobile wont do it, then i`d try ebay since it cost way less.

    You would need the phones IMEI code, but if you're not a t-mobile customer, they might not want to help you. Good luck.

    PS: Maybe if you knew someone on t-mobile, maybe they could call for you. That might work, I don't know.

    Follow the script.They will ask for a phone number, give them one.

    They will unlock it for you, regardless of customer status.

    You owe T-mo nothing, there is no lawful reason for them to keep it locked.

    Press the issue even if it means talking to managers and their managers.

    ABOVE ALL, no way pay anyone or any service. They're selling you something thats totally free and they troll these forums for business.
