Hey all,
I'm going on a business trip to Russia next week and asked Cingular if they could provide me with a unlock code so I could use a pre paid sim while there, however its been 3 days and Ihaven't received anything from Cingular as of yet and departure time is drawing near. Does anyone know the time frame involved to receive this information? I've called Cingular but get a different answer from each C/S rep. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Just spend the money for an unlocking service. Why sweat this before a trip?

Call Intl customer service (Cingular customrer 800-335-4685 24hrs) Tell them that you are traveling and need to roam using another SIM on prepaid. They will ask you for your Blackberry's IMEI and then give you the unlock code. Be sure to have free international roaming feature on your account.

Thanks jungleland. I called them and they assured me I would have my code before my departure time, and if for some reason I still did not, they said to call back on the last day and they would retrieve it for me.
I appreciate your help.
