Thumbs up unlock blackberry .net

Please Login to Remove!

While visiting the forum today I came upon the ad Unlockberry.net. They claim to be able to unlock your device without sending it off and by attaching it to your computer via usb cable. The great thing about this is that they charge only $27.99. Thought I'd give it a try and I was really pleased with their service. Without any complications it took me about 10 minutes to do the unlock and I'm on a slow dial up connection. The customer support is great if you have problems. You can contact them via live chat and one of their technicians named Andrew did a fantastic job trouble shooting what little problems I did have. If you're looking to unlock your device quickly and inexpensively without sending it somewhere you need to give them a try.

Does anybody know where you can buy an unlocked version to start off with, like not branded by an operator in the first place?

I would recommend calling your service provider first.

Dial up? wasn't that a premitive form of remote networking? I vaguely remember that technology

Seriously, you might as well teather using your BB as it would not be much of a speed loss and would save you a couple of bucks.
