1. If you are not a TMo customer, likely not.

2. For a non-North American device, that might be a normal price. Check with - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center for the best deal, they have a BlackBerryForums discount, ask for that. International unlocks can often take two weeks, but they will advise you on this.

Go here: - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center

It's only $28.00 US. Of course, that is if it's a US T-Mobile device.

The OP is not able to call the provider to get it unlocked. Only TMobile (or an unlocking service) can unlock a TMobile device. Another carrier can't unlock it.
