Default unlocking the Z10

Please Login to Remove!

I purchase my Z10 at retail price (full price, no contract) and now AT&T says they do not have the codes to unlock it, they told me to talk to blackberry (F myself I guess is what they meant)
has anyone being able to unlock their phone?

Totally disagree with that statement. Lots of areas in the Northeast and the South where T-Mo is non-existant.

T-Mo is cheap for a reason, they need subscribers.

For what it is worth, my entire family and I recently switched from T-Mobile to AT&T Wireless. Monthly cost for the family was the same, coverage, where we live, is much better. Phone selection (at the time and now) favors AT&T.

Our company is moving off of T-Mobile also. Lack of coverage, dropped calls and general customer dissatisfaction are the reasons.

I can tell you ever dead spot T-Mobile has around me for 50 miles. I drive through a lot of them daily. Cost means nothing if the calls are dropped :(

Each carrier has coverage maps on their website - you can look and compare. When I compare the coverage maps for my area online VZW has the best, next AT&T and T-Mo has the least.

I had to come back to ATT
My in-laws live in a rural area close to the florida-georgia line on I-75 and we tested tmobile's reception and they do not get any at all so i started thinking about my wife and children having a problem and not being able to call
so i am stuck again with the huge bills

Coverage is the most important part of the decision.
Having a great cheap plan with no coverage is worthless.

I just got excited about the possibility of paying $120 a month instead of $210 for my two lines.

Or you could have no cell phone at all and save all the money. Life is about choices.

Not quite sure how your up to over $200 per month. The ATT family plan is $119 for unlimited calls.
unlimited messaging adds another $30.00. If your using your cell for all data then you may look at your usage and see if a higher plan will help. If you exceed the package data limit, most carriers make a lot of money on you. Either way you should call ATT and discuss the cost. DO NOT go to a vendor store, Go to a company store and "suggest" the competition is lower and ask them what is available. Chances are your on the wrong individual plans and need a family plan.

That's fantastic, but it has nothing to do with this thread.

if you pay $119 that means you don't have a data plan. I do want a data plan for a blackberry and for an iphone, on the iphone add text messages, let me know how much that adds up to.
