Default Grrrr Unlocking question....

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, i have recently bought a blackberry curve 8900, i have been given it from my dad who got it from his contract on t mobile and i am on 02. I want to keep my sim so i was looking at an unlock code, ive looked at various sites which claim to unlock them, ive bought a few from ebay and given them my imei and they say they cant do it because it is the new codes. Ive been talking to a guy and he says that i need to go directly to blackberry to get it unlocked for 24.95. I dont really want to pay this much but i will as a last resort. I am from the UK by the way. Ive heard you can ring up tmobile and say something like your going abroad (i may be totally wrong) and need it unlocked. Is this true and will it work? And if not were else can i get it unlocked?


Thank you

Start by calling T-Mobile first. If that doesn't work, try HorizonWireles.

I've tried this with Verizon. It did not work.

However, if you're the original owner of the phone. It will work.

Yeh i will get my dad to do it, so should he say he needs it unlocked so he can use different sims to use his phone abroad?

I would just tell them he's going abroad and would like to get it unlocked.

Just remember to be polite. No need to go into all the sim card details.
