    Call T-Mo,don't pay anyone a dime.

    They will do exactly what you can do yourself, call T-mo.

    They have no magic program that generates codes.
    That was the first thing I tried... I had to be their customer or send them in a receipt of purchase at an authorized store.

    Totally untrue, What their telling you. This very thread is filled with case after case, after case, where non-tmo customers got unlocked.

    You need to ask for it properly.

    This is 100% no one ever was refused. Ask for upper level management.

    Ok, so a friend of mine has just given me a brand new 8310 locked on t-mobile UK. I'm an o2 user myself so have been trawling the net all day finding out how i can get this unlocked. I called up t-mo and spoke to a CSR in manila - Philippines. After struggling to understand them they said that i would have to write in and then wait a month for a code. After reading what you guys have wrote i struggled to believe this all because I'm the other side of a big pond . So after a heated discussion i asked them to put me through to the UK. I spoke to a really nice woman who said the time frame given is a maximum of 28 days but is usually within 3-7. She took my model number, IMEI, contact etc etc and said she will also place it as high priority (lied that i was going traveling this weekend for 2 months, so i need it ASAP). So if any other brits are having an issue with t-mo being hopeless the best solution....TALK TO THE UK CSC!!!! Oh and no charge either!!!! In typical UK fashion i call that pimms o clock!

    AT&T won't give it up. I'm a customer. Bought both curves from the AT&T, get told some nonsense about "qualifying" for international travel. Get transferred to international cs and am told it takes a week or longer. How are people able to get these codes in the same conversation? I've talked to several different reps and they all give the run around.

    ETA: Finally, after talking to a supervisor in International Customer Care, and upon discovering that we are Business customers, suddenly the story changes and they can give them right away over the phone! Apparently, if you are a regular "individual" account, they have to "submit a request to RIM" and it can take 5-7 days. If you are a "business" customer, you speak to a special "business international customer service" and they give it immediately over the phone.

    So... in short... if they tell you "oh we don't have those codes in our system," they are full of crap!

    Perhaps you can help cyriel00 get his code...his provider won't give him a code because he is in Curucao and they don't really care about lawsuits filed in the US.

    I've had two bad experiences this week. One was to unlock a pearl and the other a curve. I told them i wanted a subsidy unlock code but they ask me what is it for i said overseas use but i don't have service with them. They make an account and said that the pearl unlock code was ready but when i went to call them back they said its not and put me on hold for 20 mins so i hung up. I want to unlock my curve but i don't know what to expect anymore. I was successful in unlocking two in the past. Can someone please help me out here!

    I just got a warranty exchange. Called AT&T, gave them
    my IMEI and for the third time I was unlocked and off the
    phone in less than 10 minutes.

    1) Unlocking your phone will allow you to use it on any
    other GSM carrier network. This is helpful if you wish
    to change carrier but not the phone.

    2) If you travel you can buy a prepaid SIM card in your
    destination and avoid international roaming charges

    3) If you decide to sell the phone unlocking it can
    increase your pool of potential customers and can
    in some case increase the amount you can get for it.

    It does not add any functionality to your device

    You cannot. VZW is a CDMA carrier. You can't unlock a CDMA (no SIM card) phone

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm new to all this. What do you mean "unlock"? What would cause a BB to be locked?
