Question about T-Mobile Wing™ Smartphone
Still awaiting unlock code
Call your cell phone carriers customer service and they may email you the unlock code and instruction for free within 24-48 hours. Tmobile did this for me several times on different phones.
Tmobile will send you the unlock code and instructions via email for free for their customers within 24-48 hrs. But you have to call their customer service (US) 800-937-8997. I tried emailing them initially but no response. When I called they were so accomodating and didnt even ask why I wanted the phone unlocked.
Once they send you the code its simply inputting the code they provide. However to do this you must first put in a non tmoile sim. As far as I know this is only cingular or a foreign pay as you go sim card. Luckily I had a foreign sim that I saved on a prior trip as I have other unlocked phones and this worked for me. None of my friends had cingular so I could not use their Sim to do the unlock code on my phone. Nextel, Sprint and I think Verizon also dont use sim cards.
Alot of cell phone stores and kiosks will also unlock any cell phone for you for about $30.00. You may have to leave the phone with them and pick it up later like an hour or two later if they are busy.

SIM Cards and Unlocking your Phone
What is a SIM?
Subscriber Identity Module (SIM): A smart card containing the telephone number of the customer, encoded network identification details such as: Call Forwarding, Caller ID, etc., the PIN, and other user data such as the phone book. T-Mobile customers can move their SIM card from any T-Mobile branded phone to any other T-Mobile branded phone without the need to contact Customer Service to activate the new phone. Your rate plan and phone number will follow your SIM to the new phone.
SIM Error Messages:
A SIM PIN can be used to prevent access to your phone. When enabled, your phone will prompt you for the SIM PIN when the phone is powered on. Entering the wrong PIN will prevent you from making or receiving calls. SIM PINs are different from a Security Code that your phone may use to secure other phone functions. Please check your phone’s manual for further security details.
T-Mobile SIM PIN numbers are set to default values before purchase. If you change your SIM PIN, it is recommended that you keep record of the new PIN in a safe location. T-Mobile cannot retrieve a lost or forgotten SIM PINs.
T-Mobile branded phones operating on the T-Mobile network may only use T-Mobile SIM cards. To use a T-Mobile branded phone on another wireless carrier's network with a non-T-Mobile SIM card, you must first request a "SIM Unlock" code from T-Mobile. Conversely, if you have a phone from another North American wireless carrier, you may need to request a "SIM Unlock" code from that carrier before being able to use a T-Mobile SIM card on the T-Mobile network.
SIM Unlock Requests:
T-Mobile customers must meet the following eligibility requirements before contacting Customer Service to request your SIM Unlock code.
The following restrictions apply to all account types:

I had problems with unlocking my T-mobile Wing, (refer to my post above), But the T-mobile customer service has been very kind in providing me with the unlock code for usage outside USA. I think getting an unlocking code from the customer service (of course, if possible) is currently the best way to unlock you wings.

1) you can call your local service provider and he should unlock your phone for a fixed fees.
2) otherwise go to the unlocking sites provided you have a valid credit card and you will get an unlock code and procedure from the GSMLiberty.net
3) even postal unlocking for 25 dollars from iunlock.com
4) Otherwise for your choice just google 'unlock t-mobile wing" u will find lot of unlockers and you could buy any ones service also.
5)also u can if u call meteor customer care on 1905 they will give unlock code for free.all they ask is ur details and reason why u want this code.only catch is that u have to spend something around 100e on top ups to get it code for free..

Give the IMEI number by pressing *#06# .It will display a number thats called IMEI number.Give me that number to unlock your phone.
Give me the name of the network provider as well as your country.
If you cant get the Imei number open your phones back cover and take the barttry out, there you will find the 15 digits IMEI number on the sticker.
