Actually I think by the rules of the FCC, they have to unlock it at your request and other carriers are suppose to allow you to use another phone as long as it is compatible.

Like Cingular cant make you purchase a Pearl from them if you already own one through T-Mobile and want to get service through Cingular. Something the FCC did to help consumers with money.

Does Cingular have to insure you under that. Probably not. Would probably void everything else. Anyways that is why they are usually willing to give up the code without a fight.
