BlackBerry Curve 8520 - in need of unlocking code

I want to unlock my BB Curve 8520, so that I can use it in Europe with a local sims card when

visiting family, etc.

Anybody any idea how to do that??

 

I asked ATT, but they told me I had to go to RIM to get this............  RIM says I have to to my carrier

to get this................

 

Thanks for quick responses!

The unlocking code comes from your carrier for free, if you have service with ATT, it would be free from them. They usually require 90 days of service with an account in good standing.

 

If they won't, contact an unlock code vendor. I recommend HorizonWirelessOnline.com, very reputable and fair prices.

 

Good luck.

Re: BlackBerry Curve 8520 - in need of unlocking code

Thanks, I thought it was ATT who should give me the unlock code............  Guess the people in the

ATT shop I went to were just not prepared to give it to me...........

 

I have found the reps in the shops in this area very unhelpfull - sadly.  Guess I will call ATT and see

if that works.........

 

And, yes, I know about free wi-fi, but how do I get that to work, voip???

Re: BlackBerry Curve 8520 - in need of unlocking code

Did you buy the device from AT&T? Do you have an account with them?

They should give you the unlock code for free, tell them you are traveling internationally and need it.

 

The local reps in the store likely can't help you. Call ATT direct.

 

There is no real VoIP for BlackBerrys yet, other than Google Voice.

and UMA calling which ATT does not offer.

You can always buy an unlock code from a reputable provider like [removed unauthortized link]  Really good prices, and really fast turnaround times.
