    Either call your carrier and get it for free or find one of the
    paid services.

    Thanks a lot, I didn't realize you could just get the unlock code from T-Mobile. I called them, the lady did the request and said the unlock code will be sent to me within 24 hours. I was getting ready to pay $30 for one too!

    THanks again!!

    In case you wanted to know why I needed it, selling the Curve because I got the Storm! Love Crackberry.

    Goodness, I am so glad you made that call. It drives me nuts to
    think of people paying for what their carrier HAS to provide them
    at no cost. (In the US at least).

    As for your reason, none of my business. I just assumed that like
    me you were traveling and wanted to use the phone abroad.

    Actually I do. Jamaica and Canada. But one of the other benefits is that if you
    decide to sell the phone you can command a higher price and increase your
    pool of potential buyers as the GSM carrier no longer matters.

    My T-Mo rep was, for lack of a better term, a ******. "Oh, I'm sorry sir, we don't have the unlock code, you have to call your handset manufacturer to get that. They put it on before we receive the device, so we have no idea what the code is." Now, I told this young woman that was utter b.s. and that the carrier does in fact have the unlock code. And she proceeded to argue with me and be of no assistance. So, now that I don't have T-Mo anymore, I'm pretty much S.O.L. on that free unlock code! hahaha. Point to this post: Sometimes the CSR you speak with will have the wrong information.

    Ask to talk to a blackberry technician. The Rep's don't have a clue... I did the same thing yesterday, the rep tried to hassle me so I asked for a blackberry tech. The form for the unlock code was submitted in 5 minutes

    Would that still work since I'm not with them anymore? I've jumped ship to VZW as of August.

    You can try. Tell them you were a previous customer and would like to unlock the blackberry you had while a tmobile customer. Never hurts to ask! But be sure to ask a blackberry tech, not one of the uninformed reps

    I have never had to do that. Just tell the person who answers the phone what
    you want to do.

    If you are a current tmobile customer then just tell whoever answers you want an unlock code for your blackberry so it can be used on another carrier.

    For the poster named Option, call and ask for a blackberry technician. They helped me even though I was not a tmobile customer. I provided the cell number and name of the original tmobile blackberry owner, and told them I was unlocking the blackberry for them (which is 100% true). They assisted me though I was not a "authorized user" on the account. The regular representative would not do it, but the blackberry technician was more than helpful.
