Default Wiping / Unlocking 9530 for AT&T

Please Login to Remove!

Hey Blackberry Friends,

I crossed over to the Droid X a couple months back.

I have decided to give my Storm 9530 to a single mother in one college courses I am taking. She has AT&T service.

What would be the quickest way to wipe my phone, reload the latest OS, and unlock it for AT&T?

Could I just reload .419 with the apploader and that would wipe all the content and give me a fresh image?

Also, I have never unlocked a phone. Any recommendations for unlocking the Storm 9530 for AT&T?

I would use JL_Cmder's Reset To Factory option to wipe it.

As far as unlocking, HorizonWireless would be the best bet. But you could see if you can Call Verizon and ask if they will do it. Just tell them you're planning on going overseas.
