    Ok, So I was told I can unlock my phone and get a phone card or something in HK that'll allow my to have a cell there. I don't have a clue of where to start....:x:

    depending on what carrier you have its not too hard

    my boss gave me a blackberry for ATT but i was a tmobile customer

    since i was not an ATT customer i had my sisters friend call ATT with the phone, she then told them she needed the subsidy code to unlock the phone so she would be able to use the prepaid sim cards available oversees

    they emailed it to her in like a week and it worked perfectly

    does it screw up anything when you get back? I had an unlock cell phone and couldn't access the carrier network

    no, the unlock codes from the carrier will not hurt it

    Call your current provider and asks for the unlock code.
