    I just got the 8820 two days and its locked on at&t im a tmo customer so, i called at&t customer service asked the agent if she could give me the unlock code, i explained to her that i was not an at&t customer. after a preview conversation in which i made her laugh a couple of times she gave me a long 15 digit code. she told me to look for some one with an at&t sim card and put the their sim card in the phone then to turn the wireless off, then to go to option-sim card and type in MEPDMEP2 then the 15 digit code press enter and then reboot. i was just wondering if this sounds about correct for unlocking the phone? ur input would be greatly appreciated.

    You need a sim because you can't get to where you need to go without it.

    Got my unlock code from AT&T and followed the instructions. After pressing enter, it said "Code Accepted" Is that all there is to it?

    Thanks!

    I called AT&T and they gave me the unlock code for the 8800 I bought off Ebay. I followed the previously described procedure and it worked fine.
