Unlocking Phones

Does anyone know of reliable sources for unlocking phones? I know that its easy for nokias (unlock.nokiafree.org) but does anyone know of a reliable source for motorolas and samsungs. Any sites at all, free or charge.

Basically, I dont need this to make any money or anything. my girlfriend just got purse-napped on a trip to LA and she lost her phone. i have a few samsungs and motos that i want to get her service set up on, but they're for other providers. any help at all would be deeply appreciated. Thank you in advance.

AFAIK you cannot remotely unlock Moto.

yes you can, there is an input section for a subsidy code (ie unlock code) not all phones have to be unlocked through a cable. if you get the right code, its possible to unlock a razr with a code if you know how to do it.

All phones can be unlocked with a code. However, all phones you cannot remotely generate unlock codes from publicly available sources. Nokia, S-E and others are readily available. Moto is not.. Once you have the code anyone can unlock a device.

Is the Nokia 6133 able to be unlocked using that website unlock.nokiafree.org? Is their any site out there that can unlock this phone yet or at all? I have the IMEI # but I am not sure if it is unlockable yet. Any input??

Use www.unlock123.com

I use it all the time and it has worked 100%.

The only phone I could not unlock was an old AT&T Nokia 3650.

I guess I failed to mention....I do not want to pay for it. What sites offer FREE UNLOCKING. I am not going to pay 4.95 when I can get it for free. Any other sites?

If you/she has a Tmo account thats been open for 90 days generally a CC rep will be able to put in a research request for any phone you provide an IMEI for. A couple days later you'll receive an email with your code.

Yes, Nokias are easy.

Everything else, there are a million sites, none of which I've wasted time with because of the possibility above.

That is no longer true. Now T-Mo can only unlock T-Mo branded phones. We were having too much difficulty in getting the unlock codes from either the manufacturer or the carrier, if we managed to get them at all.
