My imei is 862990011189890 pls. send it to me my unlock code.


It don't work like that. If your phone is locked to a carrier you have to go to that carrier and request they unlock it for you(different carriers have different stipulations on if they will unlock a phone or not, so you gotta check with them) or pay a site to unlock your phone (again, most sites will only unlock your phone if the account associated with the phone is paid, in good standing, and generally out of contract, and also not black listed (reported stolen)). Generally you are wasting your money doing it that way because most of those sites require the same things the carrier require to unlock the device, but some can do blacklisted phones and other unlocks, but some may also be scams and it's not easy to tell which are legit and which are scams. Best bet would be go through your carrier (or carrier that the phone is locked to, if it's not your carrier).

It depends on if you are trying to unlock this phone on a different carrier, or if the phone has been blacklisted. If it is the latter, then you can try contacting the company to see if you can resolve the issues. If you want to unlock the phone for a different carrier, a simple google search for "phone unlocker" yields:

Since I bought my phone (W6930, Blackberry) I don't know what's the phone lock code thus I wanted to know whats the phone lock code for it so that I can have privacy from my friends.


Most cellphone carriers lock the phones so that they canonly be used by there own customers. For example, if you tried to use aT-Mobile phone with a Cingular service plan, it wouldn't likely work. Anunlocked phone is simply one that the carrier has not locked. Since most cellphones are sold through the carriers, at a subsidized price, they need to havesome assurance that you will not leave without completing your contract and goto another carrier. To unlock a phone, is to simply enter the correct codes sothat it will work with any carrier. It is possible to both buy unlocked phones,as well as unlock existing codes. Buying an unlocked phone would typically meanbuying it from someone other than a carrier.i got unlock code from here http://www.prounlocking.com/and unlocked my mobile..

Need the subsidy unlock code for env2


HI

A restriction code is numeric code (password) that prevents a user from accessing certain technical settings of a phone. It is specifically designed to prevent a phone from being reprogrammed to work with a different carrier (service provider).

This is what is usually meant when a phone is referred to as "locked". There are also "unlocked" phones that can be reprogrammed to work with a different carrier.

The reason for this system is the way phones are often sold. Many phones are sold below cost, (at a loss to the carrier,) with the expectation that the money will be recouped in the cost of the monthly service plan. The up-front loss that is later recouped is called a Subsidy.

For this to work financially for the carrier, the user must not buy the phone and then use it with a different carrier. The MSL makes that nearly impossible.

Unlocked phones are ususally much more expensive than locked phones, because there is no subsidy to offset the cost.

You should ask the operator for the restriction code
