Default Just bought 8100 now going to use it on Cingular. Help!

Please Login to Remove!

Ok guys I just bought a brand new 8100 from a friend who has tmobile, so now I want to use this on my cingular sim card. I know i need to get the phone unlocked right? Anybody have any suggestions on where and how much?

Next question is, after i get it unlocked can i just put my cingular SIM in and everything work perfect? email, text, phone, etc?

Thanks ahead for any input.

just add to cart and send him imei and pin and your set. used it for about 6-7 phones. once unlocked, yep just pop in cing sim and your all set assuming it already is setup from a previous bb and not from a normal cell phone.

I just did this today as well.. everything went perfectly... the only thing to remember is to update your TCP settings

Settings-Advanced-TCP
APN: wap.cingular
