which is pretty high-end. So I'm screwed I guess.
Can I unlock this 6820 so that it will work on Cingular? I saw that
online calculator someone mentioned but it doesn't have the 6820 on it.
After I unlock it, what do I do next? Is it out of service until I then
switch it over to Cingular? Do they just give me a new simm card or
Thanks for any help, have to do this in a hurry, like today/tomorrow
since the replacement for the one phone is supposed to be a birthday
there are many ways to unlock a phone. you can unlock it using software or hardware or through codes. if you ask me the codes are the best way to unlock it. unlocking through codes is the best and simple way to unlock any phone. i got my phone unlocked through this method only. you can get the codes either from your service provider or from any other online service providers. getting codes from your service provider can be got only if your phone within your contract period.. i got the codes from a third party ProUnlocking.com
provider. they also provide codes even for older model phones.
