Just a quick question here.
Does anyone know how to/or can unlock a V600 for free? I know its possible to do it for a fee on several UK websites and I even found a place near my house but I really dont feel like paying (And im going to have to anyways most likely) Pisses me off that ATT wont unlock its phone for Cingular when they are owned by them now (I realize they would unlock it for everyone else too)

Many US carriers put a lock on their phones IMEI number which they issue which restricts the phone use to that netork. IE if i have an ATT Phone i can only use it on the ATT Network. However, an unlocked phone (Most Cingular phones come unlocked unlike ATT and Tmobile) can be used on any network just by switching the SIM Card (also internationally)
MNeo: Where did you go/call to get it done for $20 at ATT? I just went to an ATT store and they wouldnt do it for me.

Newark, this is for GSM phones so that you can use another providers SIM card.
LOT, just e-mail cingular at that address with your IMEI # and you should be all set. T-Mobile is the only US carrier that officially unlocks their phones for customers, but I've heard that if you e-mail cingular at that address you will get a response.
