Only ones who specified "cable and wireless" others are just like.. "LOL YEAH WE CAN DO IT"
|Pizza ||05-23-2008 11:25 PM |
I heard that if you contact carries and ask for unlock code they give it to you is this correct?
|NJBlackBerry ||05-23-2008 11:28 PM |
Simple answer - sometimes. So will, some won't. Only the original carrier for the BB can give you the unlock code.
|Pizza ||05-23-2008 11:31 PM |
Thanks bud I'd rather not pay lol
|NJBlackBerry ||05-23-2008 11:54 PM |
lol - then you should not have bought a locked BlackBerry, bud.
|Pizza ||05-24-2008 12:12 AM |
I'm saying thanks for giving me that info and the chance that I may not have to pay lol

gsmphonesource.com has been reliable for me--always quick service.

In the past I had a user who had an ATT BlackBerry. We got it unlocked for free by calling tech support and telling them he was going out of the Country...they emailed him the unlock code for free.
|jepok22 ||05-27-2008 06:15 PM |
if the BB was unlocked would the PIN be changed a well?
|JSanders ||05-27-2008 06:49 PM |
No. Unlocking the BB for use on a carrier other than for which it is branded does not change the PIN. The PIN remains the same and stays with the device.
|jepok22 ||05-27-2008 08:02 PM |
i bought me a 8830 but the PIN is still used by another person, how do i work around that? if i would apply for BIS, would my local carrier take care of that for me or is that my sole problem for buying a BB from a 3rd party vendor?:cry:
|rachamphetamine ||05-27-2008 09:32 PM |
You need to call the carrier that the phone is branded to and have them release the PIN.
|Pizza ||05-28-2008 06:26 AM |
I tried emailing Cable and wireless as well as calling them..
Email: I'm moving out of the country and requesting unlock code
Response: You have to talk to your carrier we can't do anything..
My Response: You are the carrier for this phone.
( no response )
When I tried to call it was busy all the time.. Can anyone help? I did order a code from horizon but I would like to get one from cable and wireless asap just so I dont have to wait..
And what does the pin do ? Is this going to be a problem not knowing it?
|jepok22 ||05-28-2008 07:12 AM |
it seems that the carrier dont want to release the PIN. so does that mean i cant get BIS on my bb?
|JSanders ||05-28-2008 07:29 AM |
@ Pizza-- is your device branded to Cable & Wireless? Then yes, only they can provide the "free" carrier unlock.
@ jepock22-- If the carrier won't release the PIN for your use, then you will not have use of the BB for BIS at all, on any carrier. Your issue is not related to unlocking the device, I am not sure why you are posting your questions here, but so be it for now.
|Pizza ||05-28-2008 05:17 PM |
Yes it is branded to cable and wireless but I just got an email saying -
Sorry, but we can not honor that request.
wtf do I do ;/
