Hello,
if you do a web search you will find several similar requests, including one here at fixya: http://www.fixya.com/support/t266497-sidekick_3_unlock_code_or_unlock

Summing the info up, you will most likely need to pay someone a small fee to unlock it for you. I would suggest ebay if you decide to go this route.
KEEP IN MIND, however, that data will only work on T-mobile (the danger APN's are set up that way). You will only be able to use voice and text on cingular. This is worse than you think, as the sidekick stores all of it's information remotely. Therefore, with an unlocked sidekick, anytime the phone is turned off it will loose all of it's information, such as its address book.
I highly suggest you return the phone unless your wife would like to switch carriers. Does your wife like chocolate? :)
Good luck and Happy St.Valentine's Day!

Ok...do u have T-Mobile???if so if you ahve had the account for 3 MONTHS you tell them that you are going to Europe for 2 weeks and you need the unlock code so u can use it over there..they will give it to you for FREE so u dont have to pay for it...btw the Sidekick 3 is for T-Mobile and they lock their data side...so you might not beable to use the internet on it if u put it on cingular

You have to call tmobile and get the code. If you dont actually have tmobile, then if you know someone who does, have them call and say that they just bought a new phone and want to try it out and they will give them the unlock code.

I Need the unlock code for a t-mobile motorola v300 Phone. Bought it at yard sale. Want to make it use cingular sim card.


Hi,
Call T-mobile customer service and ask them that you want to place a phone unlock order (use these terms, so that you know that you know what you are talking about), and it depends on the person you are talking to you. they might not ask you alot of question, just your IMEI/ serial no and an e-mail they will forward the unlock information to, it takes some while for them to send you the information.

You can switch your service to 'Cingular' if you want to by popping in a new cingular SIM card,but can't use Verizon and Sprint service's(operate with CDMA).
Hope this Helped!

Unlock my blackberry 7290


Like you being with T-mobile, I bought a cingular phone off ebay that wasn't unlock. My sims didn't work either. My network just said call Cingular which is now AT&T and they gave me the MEP code to unlock it. Beware, you need to confirm all of your information from your network before they will help you.
