    What is the benefit to unlocking?

    Are there any downsides to unlocking?

    No downsides does not affect phone at all.
    It lets you choose any GSM carrier once it is unlocked. You can go to ATT or TMobile.

    So I just call my carrier and request the unlock code for my phone? Then input it where? Nevermind....I'm a dumbass. Sprint isn't GSM

    You can call the provider for the unlock code for your BB phone.

    Others, and I did this even if your not a customer of that service.

    They will email the code in a week or less. Some have received the code instantly.

    You can do it yourself for free.

    Call customer service of the locking company.

    Simply ask for the "subsidy unlock code". You are traveling to Italy.

    This works 100% of the time.

    Definitely don't pay for an unlock!!! That's just like burning money.

    Cheers
    Unfortunately this diesnt happen everywhere outside of the United States... clear example, Venezuela

    If you are on Sprint you can not unlock your phone they are CDMA, meaning no sim card.

    So you are saying you can't unlock a Verizon phone because they are also CDMA? The correct answer is - CDMA phones that do not have SIM's cannot be unlocked, however CDMA phones with SIM's might be able to be unlocked such as the Storm.

    Lol I just called T-Mobile right now and all I said was exactly what the first post said was to ask for the subsidy unlock code and that I was traveling to Italy and they handed it over like it was nothing. Lol. So I'm sure that little story bit will work.

    What if you have about 100 of them to unlock, lol then you run out of options with that route. But its a free way to get at least one done.

    Of all the threads I have found on this topic, I can't seem to locate one that describes what the he11 an unlock code is FOR! Everyone talks about international travel, but no one says why you need a code to do this. Aren't global smartphones MADE for such use? Why would one need to unlock it if that what it's supposed to do? Someone please set me straight!

    It has been explained 1,000 of times. If you take unlocked storm for example, overseas it will work and you pay roaming charges over $2.00 minute.
    If you have unlocked phone you can insert any GSM sim card such as ATT. TMobile or any prepaid sim card.
    So now you take this same Storm phone overseas you can buy a prepaid sim card and use it at a fraction of the cost for air time.
    Does this explain it for you?

    Rogers wouldn't give me the code. I paid cash for my phone on a month to month.

    Rogers Wireless in Canada is asking 250$ to give you an unlock code, it's written on their website.
