    I have recent purchased off a friend a Blackberry Curve 8310.

    It's on T-mobile. I want to use it on O2.

    I requested my unlock code from T-mobile but they have written back saying blackberry cannot unlock this device!!!

    I have heard about reloading software on the blackberry device. Will this work or will i still need to unlock.

    I really need some help please.

    I am desperate to start using the blackberry!!

    Unlocking a device requires the correct code. If you are not successful getting it directly from the vendor, you can order it through a service.

    Once you have it unlocked, you should be able to use it with any carrier.

    The service I use supplied my unlock code in a couple of days. They could take as long as 10 days in the disclaimer.

    Reloading software will not change that, but it is the best way to manage your devices memory.

    This thread discusses it in detail and has links to services.
