Exclamation Need to unlock your Bold 2? No problem. Horizon Wireless can do it.

Please Login to Remove!

Some of you already know, but unlocking the new Bold 9700 is no problem via Horizon Wireless.

HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center

I just had mine done and had the code in no time!

Is there anything Horizon Wireless can't do?

Can anyone explain how unlocking a phone works and why there are so many companies that do it? Do these companies have to pay to get these codes and thats why there is a market for it or what? I remember unlocking phones when I was just starting college and it was some simple stuff you just looked up online and entered.

I'll tell you something Horizon Wireless can't do. Make a T-mobile 9700 work on At&t 3G, or vice versa. ;)

yes the codes are generally purchased by unlock providers

BB cant be simply hooked up to a computer, each BB has its own uniques unlock code

The 9700 on BELL does. I'm told on Rogers it only requires one unlock code.

For the poster that mentioned unlocking a BELL 9700... can it really be unlocked? I had a Bell 8830 (just got my 9700 today) and I was never able to get it unlocked.

It requires 2 codes but it can be unlocked.

I don't want to start a war but I paid 2.59USD to have a BB Bold 9700 unlocked by an eBay seller. I sent them the model number and IMEI number and got the instructions and unlock code in about 20 minutes.

It was an ATT BB 9700 and it worked with Tmobile but of course not with Tmobile's 3G network.
