Red face How to unlock a 7290?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm shopping for a 7290 on ebay and some say they are locked in with some us carriers (ex t-mobile). Can I unlock it myself and use a rogers sim card? Or do I need an expert to do that? In any case would that be expensive?

Thanks for your help.

There are several unlocking services, and most run in the $40 range. GSM Phone Source is one that many on here have used, though there are others, as well.

It cost about 30 to unlock a bb in china.it is about $4.but i don't think you will come here to unlock your bb.
