Hey there festo, you are possibly in luck if the service provider did not lock it originally. It may just be a matter of replacing the simm card with one from another service provider. This card is underneath the battery. In most cases however the phone can only be unlocked at the service provider. Some other phones such as nokia, can usually be unlocked with a code. I would suggest you send out your phone to a cingular service rep. to get it unlocked. they can generally get it back to you in a couple of days. Good Luck

Hi im soory to say but the only way to unlock this phone is using a flash lead and the flashing programme you might get the programme off the net you could try looking using search engine.
But the problem with your model and newer ones the software on the phone dont allow you to use the codes like the older phones did.
Its the same with most new phones you used to be able to put a code in and unlock the phone it was the same with all nokias untill recently now you have to flash them and reprogramme them.
Most phone shops will do this for you but they will charge a small fee for the service.
But im sorry to tell you that the only way to unlock your phone is with the flash lead.
When i started this site i was unlocking phones and removing the security codes but when the new phones came out i found out that the makers altered the software so that it dont unlock the phone somw nokias even shut down and then you have to get the whole phone reprogrammed.
You will come across sites that say they can unlock your phone and ask for credit card details dont give them as its a con you cant unlock this model number using codes sorry but its the truth i have alot of people asking me on this site even other experts as they know im good with phones and have worked with phones for years but i can no longer help them with unlocking the newer phones ill double check but im sure its the same with your phone if i find anything new ill post back ok
