Option # 3: T-Mobile or Cingular, your carrier
Yes, you can ask your carrier for an unlock code for your Blackberry and guess what, they do it for it Absolutely FREE. So, what is the catch? The only condition which atleast T-Mobile imposes on its customers before it gives out the unlock codes for the Blackberry Pearl or any other cell phone is that you have to be under the contract for atleast 90 days or 3 months before they can give you the unlock code. So, if you have the patience, I would recommend that you wait for this 3 month time frame before calling up 611 from your T-Mobile phone, talk to customer service and get your unlock codes.
In my search for the Blackberry Unlock codes, I found out that a lot of people mess up before they have no idea how to enter the unlock codes correctly. So, follow this method to enter your Blackberry Unlock code

SOURCE: USB connection failure to Blackberry 8800

I have the same problem.  The following solution may apply; here is how to IDENTIFY the problem: (1) Phone doesn't connect to desktop software through USB but will through BT (if setup) (2) Phone doesn't charge whether USB-computer, USB-wall, USB-carcharger or does sometimes but you are not sure why it works sometimes but not all the time (3) If you hold, lean, twist, or jiggle the plug at the phone, it may charge or the charge icon may show briefly (Also) Plug is noticeably loose or comes out Solution: if plug is torn loose, damaged, or comes all the way out, go to this site and follow along in kind http://computerguru365.blogspot.com/2006/02/diy-blackberry-usb-repair.html If plug is simply intermittant: remove all power and the battery, open your phone, and carefully redo the solder joints of the plug.  If you don't have a SMT (surface mount) rated soldering iron w/ tip, you can use the radio shack standard but be sure to only apply the hot tip in pulses (less than/up to 50% of time, less than 3sec each touch) so you don't heat damage the surrounding components. Why: Because the plug gets tugged to the sides causing the solder joints to crack (microscopically).  At first I had to lean books against the plug but then that quit working as well.
This approach also worked on my laptop which quit charging when plug torque flexed the motherboard and cracked the solder at some surface components near the plug.  I found out which components when the varying the force of my multimeter tip cause the component to show open and normal across the solder joint

I have bought a at&t blackberry torch which is locked.how do i open it??


Hello, if your blackberry locked by old password just type any password until you fail 10 times. It will make your blackberry torch 9800 unlocked and reset to default setting. But if you means locked by network, you need blackberry unlock code to unlock your blackberry phone.

When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code” for phone unlocking companies in your area.

I have BlackBery 8800


If your phone is a GSM phone meaning the phone has a SIM card usually T-mobile or At&t, tell your son to call customer service and tell them that he needs the unlock code for his phone, if he has been with the company for more than 90 days they will give it to you with out any hassle, they might ask why you need it, tell them he is traveling over seas, they will email you the unlock code wihin 48 hours, free of charge, when you get your new service provider they will issue you a new SIM card which you will put in the phone once it powers up it will ask you for the unlock code.

There is another way if you dont mind paying a few bucks, check out this link. let me know if this helps
