    I don't really need an unlocked Storm for travelling abroad or going to another carrier, however, I have a Ford Edge which has the Sync system in it. While my phone calls, phonebook, and even media streaming via the Bluetooth all work fantastically, Sync has the ability to read your text messages to you when you received them in the car, and Verizon has their stupid Bluetooth locked down so that this feature is unsupported. Granted I didn't buy the car for this feature, but it would be great for it to work. I know that AT&T supports the text msg reading (my boyfriend has an AT&T phone with Bluetooth and we've tested it out), so I was wondering that if I unlocked my Storm, if anyone knew if this would make it possible for the Sync to read my texts? I don't want to do the unlock unless there's some actual benefit in there for me. Another feature I'm missing out on b/c of Verizon is having my custom ringtone play through my speakers in the car when the Bluetooth is connected and I get a call...instead I have to settle for generic phone ring -- compliments of being unsupported by VZ.

    Does anyone know if unlocking the phone would help with this? Thanks in advance!!

    Hey folks...I just unlocked my Storm by calling VZW.. I had to call twice b/c the first rep wasn't being too cooperative. Maybe a dumb question, but I can't seem to find my contacts on my China SIM which I'm using in the Storm.

    You probably have to import them from the SIM to the phone.

    they said you need to be a member for at least 60 days. if not they will not give the code. i say screw it and pay 9.99 to buy the code if you just activated not too long ago.

    Nope, no magic unlock password, say goodbye to the data on the phone.

    Called Verizon, told them I was going on a trip and wanted to use a pre-paid SIM card. They couldn't have been more nice and the whole thing was done in 10 min. Don't pay ANYONE to do something that the company will do for free!
    Had the exact same experience with VZW Global Support. Took him 2 seconds to pull up the code, pulled the battery and now my Storm is unlocked!!!

    YAY!

    they have released the code all you have to do is call 1-888-844-0395 have a great day stormers this is my first trend!!!!!
    I called Verizon Wireless today requesting unlock code for my Storm. They sent me over to tech support. They asked me for my sim card ID and registered it on their network. Is this all there is to unlock a blackberry these days? I was under the impression there were codes I had to enter to make it carrier free?

    Like Mike said in one of his post...be a VZW member for 60 days and be current on your bill and its all good. I did tell them that I am going to the U.K. in a couple of weeks to bypass any questions as to why I wanted to unlock the phone.

    The entire process took maybe all of 5 minutes! Not to shabby.

    Thanks Mike.

    Hey everyone, I just have a couple of concerns.

    My friend from the Philippines is trying to pay me $750.00 for my Storm, sounds tempting but I don't know how to go about the unlocking it and claiming it lost or stolen after like 3 weeks or a month. I told him to just buy a new unit at an outright price at Verizon, but he wants mine. I don't know what to do since the price he is willing to pay me is profitable.

    Is there only one unlock code or does it vary from phone to phone? Kindly let me know, as he is very desperate to be the first ones to have a BB Storm in the Philippines.
