    hey guys,
    i bought a z10 not too long ago, on a 2 or 3 year contract with tbaytel as carrier. Im travelling to thailand for a month and wanted to buy sim card there, to use on their network. i have watched the video on how to enter password. basically just wondering, if my steps are conrrect and if it will work with my phone and carrier.

    Go to an unlock website, pick my carrier and they sent password to my email. enter it, and when i get to thailand just put one of their sim cards in.. correct??

    please help i leave sunday..

    Yes just check in your sim settings to make sure you have three unlocked sections.

    after comparing it to a video on yourtube, in the sim card setting after the guy unlocks it he has an extra option.

    mines says

    network subset- unlocked
    service provider- unlocked

    his says:

    network - unlocked
    network subset- unlocked
    service provider- unlocked

    Yes. Once you get your unlock code, and assuming it's correct, you can unlock your Z10 w/o putting in a different SIM. You no longer have to install an "alien" SIM to unlock. I unlocked mine with t-mo using my stock SIM and I've never even tried another SIM. However, if the code does NOT work, don't keep trying over and over. Remember, you have ten tries and then the phone locks permanently to your carrier.
