I know unlocking has been discussed to death..
7100g and I want it unlocked!
Im a tmo customer and would like to use an old 7100g locked to cingular. I called TMO and they couldnt do it obviously. I called Cingular and they wouldnt do it even though I still have a cingular locked 8700 currently in service. SO I broke down and purched unlocking via datacable from unlocktotalk_com via the JIC nextgen server. Well, long story short and that didnt work either. I have exhausted my tech support options and just dont know what to do. Any suggestions as to what to try now? Id like to attempt calling cingular again if anyone has a suggestion as to what to say (ie "i plan on travelling overseas")

GSMPhoneSource can unlock Cingular BBs. They unlocked an 8700c for me.

You can get new 7105t from T-Mobile for $99 if you sign with them, and all they ask is sign for a monthly plan.

How much did you spend for unlocking already and how much more will you spend?

That would involve signing a new contract, wouldn't it?

Good point.

And if I wear a hat no one will see it ;-)

Okay here is the whole scenario.

3 years of service with TMO using Sidekick1, Sidekick2, and tmobile MDA (HTC Vario). the latter of wich was stolen 30days after purchase and apparently the rep didnt sign me up with insurance. That is how I ended up with this old 7100g. Previosuly in service with my father who now uses an 8700 on the same account.

Im explaining all of this because A) I dont wanna spend any more money 2) Since I just got the MDA and then lost it I am currently under 2yr contract and do not want it to be any longer, so buying a new phone and new contract is OUT.

I spent 25$ for unlocking and recieved a full refund so im willing to spend a few $$ for an IMEI remote unlock but since the unlock via datacable didnt work I have my doubts.

I really just want Cingular to give us the unlock code as this would be free obviosly. I think it is silly the phone has to currently be in use considering how long my father has been a Cingular customer and the uses a BB still on their network.

Sorry for the lengthy post..

Contact Adam at GSMPhoneSource. $45 and it will work.

Are you sure it will work?
