Default Website claims they will unlock any BB remotely

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone seen/dealt with this site: http://www.gsmlocker.com/blackberryunlock.asp.

Looks like they claim they can unlock any BB remotely for $129 (just send PIN and IMEI). Bongowireless still requires that you send it to them for $100 plus shipping, right?

Is this legit?

Well no contact no. maybe me but I find it important, that being said they do take all major credit card and seem to have banner sponsors for blackberrystuff.com and eOffice from what I see, brings some comfort to a purchase?

They say they do the 8700c. Now how could that be if they are not released?

From their web site:

"We currently provide services to (only GSM models) :
Blackberry 5790, 5820, 6210, 6220, 6230, 6280, 6510, 6710, 6720, 6750, 7100g, 7100i, 7100r, 7100t, 7100v, 7100x, 7105t, 7210, 7230, 7250, 7270, 7280, 7290, 7510, 7520, 7730, 7750, 7780, 8700c"

The 5790, 6510, 6750, 7100i, 7510, 7250, 7270, 7510, 7520 and 7750 models are not GSM. I would be VERY CAREFUL...

Question

Is it even possible to remotely unlock a BlackBerry?

I thought you had to enter the code manually?

Remotely unlocking generally means they supply you with the code and then you unlock it.

You must be a TMo customer as unfortunately they are the only carrier that offers an unlock policy if your in good standings.

Any idea how to get a Cingular 8700c? I called Cingular and they never unlock and don't even have the codes.

How to Hijack A Thread 101, by Richard.

Do you want to get an 8700c or an unlocked 8700c. I just bought an 8700c without a service plan (I paid a fortune for it, but hey, it's Other People's Money) because there are 8700cs out there. Just not unlocked.

I unlocked my Treo 650 at a place like this (or maybe it was the same place). What happens is you download a program, connect your BB to your computer, and the program finds whatever number it needs, then it calculates the unlock code. You enter that number into the phone and it's unlocked....at least thats how it was with my Treo 650. Just remember to write the numbers down or take a screenshot b/c if you close it, you have to pay again to see the numbers.

Edit: Oh...the Treo 650 unlock was just $20
