He sent me an unlock code within an hour and a set of very detailed instructions. However the code didnt work and i contacted him again. He then looked for my vendor number. I emailed him this and the he sent me software called bb reader to get more information he says he needs to send to blackberry. I am not saying the guy isnt ligit but i just wanted to see what some more experienced unlockers think. I am concerned about what the software will extract from my blackberry.
Any advice would be welcome.
I would contact the company in my signature. They are a very reputable unlocker. They have discounts for BBF members. The owner is actually and active member here. I would check in with them before going any further with this individual.
