How to Unlock a T-mobile Cell Phone for FREE
You don't need to pay to have your prepaid cell phone unlocked. Here's how to do it for free!
by Paul Ace Diamond "Huggy" Blow
1) You have been a member of their service for more than 40 days
2) You have at least $10 worth of air time in your prepaid account
If you meet these requirements, simply call T-mobile's customer service and tell them you need the unlock code for your cell phone. You will need to provide to them the IMEI number of your phone (which can be found underneath the battery or can be shown on your phone by dialing #06#). With that, T-mobile will email the unlock code for your cell phone to you within one week with instructions on how to use the code.
There you have it! Why pay some third party website good money for a code you can get for FREE from T-mobile? Of course, if you do not meet the requirements set by T-mobile you may have to pay for the unlock code.
(NOTE: You will be able to use your unlocked T-mobile cell phone with other GSM carriers that use SIM cards but will NOT be able to use it with CDMA carriers such as Verizon or Sprint that do not use SIM cards.)
