Default New Bb Owner Need Help!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi I was given a blackberry curve 8310 and the previous service was at&t and i want to switch it to tmobile so i went online to ebay to find a service that can unlock it. i ound a service for 10 bucks that said that they would unlock the phone, but the guy told me that the imei # was not found in the att database...i dont know what that means because i never dealt with unlocking a phone before so i called att and they couldnt find the imei either, saying that the code was "unavailable". so the guy from ebay said that there's a international submission for imei that are not found, and that would be an addtional 35 this correct? am i going about the right way? i have no other options but to trust this guy but maybe someone can help me and not have to pay a big amount of money? please help! thanks!

Call - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center for unlocking.

You can trust them if they tell you the truth and not pick $$s from your pocket.

There is the chance 1) you gave the guy an incorrect IMEI, or that it is truly unavailable, as sometimes they are not available on prerelease devices and various other reasson... rarely.

But the guys at horizon you can trust.

I've heard of an IMEI unlock number not coming up only once, and the only way to use the phone was to get one of those universal SIM cards. They work good, just annoying that you have to use them.
