Yes to both! I have Cingular Wireless on a Nokia $150 phone...bought the Blackberry on EBay but when I got it, I found it was locked to ATT. Since they were merging I thought "ok no problem"...nix. Then, I went to Cingular, they referred me to a technician who told me it was not possible to unlock it. Then I asked my ex ATT friend, a project manager and engineer and she suggested those codes. The problem is that I have a hard time getting the darned thing to even put in symbols or capitals or anything! All I want is a phone, text messaging and the ability to hold up to 5000 names, phones and addresses, that is all. I do not need pictures, web browser, email or anything else. Do you suggest just giving up and going with Palm or is thee a solution to my problem with Blackberry?
