Cingular Wireless replaced BellSouth Mobility DCS,
of course. Unlock codes are unique to a IMEI.
Two and a half years ago, I was able to get the
same model Pacific Bell Wireless phone unlocked
via Cingular Wireless. Since then, policies have
changed. I have not currently been able to get the
unlock code of a PacBell Nokia 6190. I've had
service from BSM to CW for nearly five years.
The policy is that unlock code for world, multi-
band phones will be furnished; those for single-
band USA phones will not.
That being said, I have used a fellow in Toronto
to unlock a 5190 successfully, without the
assistance of its original service provider.
Perhaps I'll find someone domestically next time.
