    Called GS # and had ZERO issues!!! took 5 mins. Called a couple weeks ago and they wouldn't give it to me. Just hang up and talk to some one different. It's always worked for me, for any issue w/VZW

    What rate do you want to pay for my time?
    My attorney charges $350/hr whereas my janitor charges $10/hr.

    Also, you can send me your Storm then I'll activate it on my account.
    Keep it for a month so Verizon doesn't get suspicious, then unlock it.
    Then send it back to you.
    (During the time I have your Storm, I may do an insurance claim on it.)

    I've called a few times and no one will give me the unlock codes since I'm not a Verizon customer.

    How do you verify a phone is unlocked once the process has been completed?
    If a restore/back up file in DM was installed on phone after being unlocked would it revert to locked?

    I give up!!!! I think I called 20 times and I get the same answer every time. No one at VZW is willing to give me the unlock code for the storm without having set up a verizon account. I think I've used every variation of why I would like to unlock the phone without signing up with VZ. Can anyone help me out here. What am I missing?

    so unlocking the phone is only good for using on other networks? if thats true then i see no point for me since i like verizon best. but cool that the rest of you can take it other places now.

    To any of experts - do we still need to delete the vendor.xml file so that when we insert a non-Verizon SIM in the phone the new software - such as Vodafone, will boot automatically? Thanks.

    I have two Storms and I called to get the unlock code for both devices at the same time. I have three lines of service but one of the Storms had not been activated at that time. I had to activate the second Storm on one of my other lines in order to get the unlock code for it.
    According to the representative that I spoke with, in order to obtain the unlock code the device had to be active on a VZW line & the unlock code is specific to the device.

    For all of you that faced the same problem as me when Verizon refused to give me the unlock code , have no fear, there's still hope!


    I went to about 5 cellphone shops to see if they could unlock it for me, none of them could but 2 employees referred me to the following site

    CellphoneUnlockingOnline.com

    I ordered an unlock code from them for $49 and had the code in the morning Entered it and Voila, my phone is now unlocked.

    Now I'm using it on AT&T with no issues and am very pleased




    So don't give up hope fellow stormers!


    If Verizon refuses to give you the code you can unlock your Blackberry storm at CellphoneUnlockingOnline.com



    I also saw a few people selling the unlock codes on ebay, but they're charging more.



    Hope this helps someone!



    Merry Christmas

    quick question:

    if i unlock the storm and use it on ATT only from this point, when verizon releases OS updates the only way to update my phone will be manually, correct?

    thanks.

    I haven't called to unlock mine yet, but I will. I'll be traveling to Europe to see my son next year and will not want to pay Verizon's global prices.

    so whats the point of the "sim card" in my phone..?

    It allows you to roam internationally on Vodaphone's network (Vodaphone is one of VZW's parent companies, FYI). I believe it also works if you sign up for one of VZW's international calling plans.

    Anyway, International Roaming is uber expensive, so many people want prepaid sims instead, but since the phone is SIM-locked they wont work without the unlock code which is what this whole thread is about. A side benefit of unlocking it is that you can use it on other networks in THIS country (EDGE only, no 3G) if you so desire.
