First the standard dc/dc answer:

USE THE SEARCH FEATURE!!

However, since I'm having a good day, please check GSM PhoneSource - When Only The Best Will Do or HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center .

That's excellent. The OP may not have been a customer long enough to get it from T-Mobile.

Bluffheights90814,

i definitely, recommend horizon wireless. i placed and order with them and used the code: "economy" which saved me $10.00 on the code. i received the code less the 12 hours later. BTW, i found the code on the front page of crackberry.com which horizon wireless is doing a contest for 15 free unlock codes for the curve 8900.

I have been with T-Mobile for over 3 years and they unlocked my Pearl so I am going to see if they will do the same with the 8900 telling them I need it unlocked as I am going to Mexico on vacation .... mabye that will work for a free unlock.

Otherwise, try Horizon's service. Thanks for the promo code BTW!
