Re: Unlock BlackBerry Torch 9800

Can anyone verify that the above instructions work?  I ask as I would like to buy a Blackberry Torch as a gift for someone whose US mobile phone service provider is T-mobile, rather than AT&T.

 

Thank you,

 

Colin

Re: Unlock BlackBerry Torch 9800

As someone who is trying hard to buy a Blackberry, I am amazed at how difficult this is: Blackberry itself doesn't have an easy way for potential customers to contact it; it also doesn't apparently have anyone monitoring these support fora.

Re: Unlock BlackBerry Torch 9800

Your carrier is the first line in support for your device or the place you bought it from, from there you can have your issue escaleted to RIM from their support.

 

You dont call Japan when your Toyota is broke do you? NO, you goto the dealer.

 

You can call RIM anytime you want, but be prepared to pay for the support call.

Re: Unlock BlackBerry Torch 9800

Thank you for your reply knottyrope.  I am not currently a Blackberry owner; as I have explained, I am trying to buy a Blackberry for someone else as a gift.  

 

Thus, I do not have a service provider to call: my intended recipient does, and I am therefore trying to find out how to unlock the AT&T Torch for use with T-mobile.  Any advice would be most appreciated.

Thank you knottyrope.

The Horizon Wireless homepage has, at its top, a link to a page advertising Torch unlocks; following the link takes one to http://www.horizonwirelessonline.com/cat/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=4_219_220&products_i... that explains "Sorry, the product was not found"

Yes, they do work. It is simple. Go ahead and do it. I just did. It took me 3 minutes to get it up and running with my brazilian carrier (bought the AT&T Torch in the US). You just wont get your BIS service up until you contract/setup it with your carrier.
