    You can get it unlocked from them but they will charge you anything under $20 or you can even get it unlocked from your service provider by contacting them

You need an unlocked GSM quad-band phone or, at the very least, one with the 850Mhz frequency.

    If you've had a T-Mobile phone
    for 90 days, or you've run out of time on a Cingular contract, you can
    get an unlocking code just by calling your carrier. Tell your carrier's
    customer service representative that you're traveling abroad and want
    to use a foreign carrier's SIM card.

    or-

    say you've just bought a phone
    off of eBay and it turns out to be locked, or you want to use a phone
    locked to a foreign carrier,

    This is a simple idea which can helps..
