After I got mine unlocked the only thing I did was change the TCP to wap.voicestream.com and left out the username and password and everything works great!

If you have been a T-Mobile customer for at least six months and your payments are current, they could unlock it for you. If not, these folks, for a nominal change will treat you very well:

Keep in mind that the Bold will be EDGE only on T-Mo. The 3G freqs are not compatible. Also, I doubt that T-Mo will be able to give you a free unlock code since they don't sell or support the Bold.
