    They will not give a non-customer the unlock code.

    Fo you and everyone else who want their Storms unlocked, contact HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center or click the link in my signature. They are a great company. Quick and very professional.

    So, my question is this...for those legitimately wanting to unlock for overseas travel obviously you're a VZW customer and just don't want to incur the roaming charges. That's fine. But for those creaming their jeans so they can use other network sim cards, did you pay full retail for your Storms and not a promo price for re-upping a contract? I only ask because of an earlier post stating something to the effect of "taking back control of whats ours, our phones..etc" and "I paid for it, it's mine". Well, only technically is it yours if you signed the service contract which is why you got a promo price which is why when you break your contract people like me who are loyal customers get 'effed over in having to pay more in increased fees, etc...kinda like insurance fraud. However if you paid full retail for it, God bless ya and more power to you because then and only then is it your phone.

    Does the screen say sim security disabled when you succesfully unlock the storm?

    I got the code with no problem, and VZW could not have been more helpful. But then could not get the phone to accept the code. The reason?

    No one mentioned that after you enter the code string, you must hit ENTER to send it.

    Intuitive? Mebbe. But when I am messing with the operating system, I don't hit random keys (not even the ENTER key) just for giggles or to see if it will work.

    Anyway, unlock is easy once you hit the ENTER key...

    I've been trying to call Verizonwireless four times today, however, they do not giving out the unlock code to me, and I am wondering is it just my bad luck or they are not giving out anymore?

    OK, so I had my storm unlocked as well, but I dont have an extra sim card lying around. is there a way to check to confirm that it is indeed unlocked? I went to:

    "http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.php/How_do_I_determine_if_my_BlackBerry_is_%22unlocked %22%3F"

    and followed the instructions and my network tab still lists as active? should this be the case? can one of you who have the phone unlocked for sure check and see if this is the case on yours?

    I don't get it.

    What's it do?

    Just allows you to have different service?

    Or does it "jailbreak" it

    actually the verizon tech said they already unlocked it, I just want to confirm if that they did it correctly or not.

    I also have mine unlocked and it says Active as well so I don't know if its actually unlocked or is the Storm is different from other BlackBerry's.

    This is my first BB and my first smart phone. I'm loving it but I'm sure it can do more. I'm waiting for some good free GPS apps. Neither Live Search or amAze works for me. And google maps does not use the internal GPS yet.

    Anyway, what does the unlock do for you?

    I just called the Verizon Global Support number today and asked to have my Storm unlocked. It all went with an issue. One thing I would recommend is to call from a different phone as they will have you turn of all Network connections to unlock the Storm. So it takes only about 5 minutes if all goes well. I put in a TMobile Sim and it seems to be working fine.

    First call in and ask the rep. transfer the call to "Global support" they are the only department that willing to do this for you. I have been calling for like 5 times and explain to the "reps." for like multiple times, but the only answer was they do not like you to unlock you phone they want you to use their international plan....(cut the crap). Each device has its unique unlock code, it's not universal, then you should be able to get the unlock code without any problem.
