Default issues with blackberry 7100 unlock

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, I recently got a bb 7100t off of ebay. Looks and works great except, it is locked to t-mobile. So i went on to get a program and code from gsmlocker, which has yet to work, so i have a few questions if anyone has used them before.
1,.. they e-maild me back and told me to download v4.1.1 and game me a link to blackberry.com and all i can find on there is the desktop software and i already have that, does the extra 1 on v4.1 mean i need service pack 2? also when runing this program do i need to have me sim card in it,(cell one) for the program to work? Well sorry to have to put you guys through that but gsm locker sucks ass! and i need help, thanks a ton, and if you could tell me if there even is a handheld os v4.1.1 and where to get it that would be great, as it is hard to come by because i am not a t-mobile suscriber.
Thanks!
