What carrier is the 8310 locked to? If it's AT&T then the turnaround can be quick. If it's foreign then it can take longer.

also note that although a 24hr turnaround is possible, nothing is guaranteed. everyone has different experiences, some are more positive than others.

All in the nature of unlocking BB devices. it's not always as simple a process as it would seem.

That's the same as the 3rd line in Sith's sig.

Good source, nonetheless.

GSMPhonesource was quick for me, I had a code within a day. Not sure how long it takes on a weekend though.
T-mobile can get you one for free provided your account is in good standing and you've been in contract for least 90 days and you bought it from them. I haven't a clue as to how long it takes, the CSR may just give it to you over the phone. Otherwise check GSM Phone Source, there is a huge thread about them somewhere around here, last time I peeked in they had a good track record.
