Urgent - Unlocking Phone For International Travel
Hello. I will be traveling to Egypt next Friday (10/29), my first international trip. I contacted TMobile about three weeks ago to discuss international rate plans and the representative I spoke to told me I didn't need to do anything to prepare my phone for international travel. Tonight, when I call TMobile to sign up for the international unlimited email plan, I was told I needed to unlock my phone. Since I have never traveled internationally I did not know about that. The representative said it could take up to two weeks. Now I am worried because my trip is in 7 days.

Does it normally take that long to unlock a phone? Is there any company aside from TMobile that can provide expedited service? I really do not wish to be 11 days in Egypt without a phone! Thanks. :oops:

T-Mo could take 3-5 days even though they tell you 3 weeks.
Also there are lots of companies that are charging ~10 $ and they are done within hours and you are all good.
Once you have the BB unlocked, call T-Mo and have them add the "BB International Feature (39.99)" on the TOP of your BB Plan. Make sure they dont RE-DO the whole account setup (They did this to me and wiped out all the email accounts and I was in remote country and could not add those accounts because I was not one the T-MO network.

Make sure the International feature is enables atleast 3 days before you leave on your trip. That way you can make sure all the features are working while you are here in US of A.

In case you have any issues while abroad, call T-MO 805.637.7243 and ask the rep to call you back on the other land line and TMO rep will call you back so you dont incurr heavy call charges.

Good LUCK>
