    I think you have to have an account with them to get the unlock code... because if you aren't a customer I don't think they will really want to talk to you. other than activations for new accounts. Also, if you are thinking about getting another blackberry to use it with sprint, you cant because sprint doesn't use sim cards... meaning you cant use a sim card phone with sprint... So it will only do you any good if you leave sprint and get an unlocked blackberry.... an unlocked blackberry wont work with sprint. I think that makes sense.... yeah
    I got my 8310 unlocked by ATT, and I was never a customer of theirs.

    Still not.

    Well "unlocked" or not, still can't use it with sprint... which was the main point of my post

    I requested TMOBILE to send me the code and they did it promptly. I then asked for the one for my RAZR and they said I could only get one every 90 days. I was considering taking the RAZR to South America rather than the BB and just text and e-mail rther than use talk minutes at all....At $3.00 minute that is RIDICULOUS!!! there is alot of room for marketing in the international realm. Whoever gets it first will gain a client base immediately so its win-win to get it established.

    AT&T Unlock -easy

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I just called AT&T and told them I am travelling to Europe and I need my phones Subsidy Unlock Code. She asked for my IMEI # and then she gave me the unlock code.

    I typed it in the phone and that was it. Easy and Free.

    Thanks

    Well, if you go two or three pages back in this thread, you will see that I posted instructions on how to put it in. No need to repeat information.

    do a search... there are several posts on how to do this.
    Power phone on and Turn off the radio (Turn Wireless Off option) VERY
    IMPORTANT.
    3 Select "Options" and then "Advanced Options"
    4 Scroll down and select "SIM Card"
    5 Hold down <ALT> and type "MEPD" (multitap means this will be typed in
    [M] [ER] [OP] [OP] [DF])
    - this will not display on screen
    6 Hold down <ALT> and type "MEP2" (multitap means this will be typed in
    [M] [ER] [OP] [OP] alt [TY])
    - this will not display on screen
    7 Enter the Unlock Code
    8 Press enter
    9 Reboot device. Device is now unlocked.

    This is what I did on an ATT blackberry... I think it should be the same

    Thank you.

    How much do you use on your TMO Pre-paid SIM card to text, email, and surf the browser on your BB?

    This might be the way to go for me when my contract is up.

    Sorry, just saw this now, I sent ans via pvt.

    Again, several data sims on ebay for unlocked BB and other phones.

    Rates are 18.99 to 25.00 for 32 days of unlimited txt, data, and 600 to 5000 minutes of voice per month.

    No tax, seems like a good deal.

    Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!
    My phone is UNLOCKED now.

    The process was simple.
    I've been on my TMO contract for 90 days. It took 4 days to get the code.

    Thank you for providing the instructions to enter the code!
