Thank you. I just managed to reach a knowledgeable support person at cingular and she unlocked my 8700c phone in a minute ! (The other person I called yesterday told me it would take 5 days and had 'processed a form' ! - I guess you need keep trying till you reach someone who knows)
She also confirmed that the way international roaming works, the fact that the call reached my device abroad will result in a phone call charge even if I decline the call and it goes to the VM.
