How to Unlock Phones

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
How do you do it. Or, should I say, they do it?

It must be some sort of program that takes your phone's IMEI and computing a unlock code.

I found a few "crappy" programs on the internet.

These people on craigslist and phone shops that do this for a fee, how are they doing it?

Yeah, for a fee.

Screw that. I want to figure out how to get my own Unlock code. Then maybe I can become one of those services. Especially locally on craigslist.

Are there also unlocking "devices" that unlock phones?

You're not the only one that would like to know.
I have tracked down some leads on how to.
But I doubt I could link them. It ain't cheap.

There are services online for $10-50, depending on exact model and demand. There are also some programs out there, but you have to sift through a bunch of BS. It's honestly not a worthwhile enterprise. Get in a mobile-centric forum and they should be able to point you in the right direction.
