Default Help with AT&T to T-Mobile

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 7290 for at&t but I would like to use it on t-mobile. I know I can unlock the phone but all of the data features would not work on the tmobile network. Is there any way I can update the software or firmware to make the 7290 for t-mobile.

It will work fine on the T-Mobile network, assuming you can get it unlocked.

Oh my. MFTP.
Search for "unlock blackberry" on this forum; there is no program. You have to pay someone to do it.

I got my AT&T/Cingular BB 7290 unlocked via remote from a dude on ebay for only $45.00. It was much less then Bongowireless and it was very quick (less then 24 hours). The unlock was the actrual code from Cingular and the BB seems to be running pretty smoothly.

Just got it activated thru T-Mob and it seems like it is working pretty good.

his handle is GSM(something).

Dude's name is GSMPhoneSource. He does a great job.
$45 and he gets the code within 24 hours.
He unlocked my 8700c to run on T-Mobile.
