Phone Unlocking - Science and
When we first started
unlocking phones, back in 2003, the phones were very much
simpler, and so too was the unlocking process. All Nokia
phones could be reliably unlocked with a simple $5 code, and
just about all other models could be easily unlocked with
equipment we had in-house, and for which we charge(d) $25.
In the five years and more
since then, the 'state of the art' has evolved enormously.
Not only do phones have a lot more fancy features for their
users to enjoy, they often have much more complicated locking
Nowadays we never really
know if we can unlock a phone until we see it. Within a
single model phone, there may be many different versions of
firmware, some which can be easily unlocked, and some which
can't, and some of which are specific to one wireless company,
and others specific to others.
The appearance of a phone
model on our list no longer guarantees that we can unlock it.
It means, instead, that most of the time, we can probably unlock
it. Sometimes we can't, and sometimes we have to get
special third-party extra services, at extra cost which we pass
on to you if you authorize us to do so.
Please understand, we'll do
the best we can, to get your phone unlocked as quickly and
inexpensively as possible. And if we can't unlock your
phone, we'll of course return it to you and fully refund you the
fee you originally paid.
Why Choose Us
Other companies also offer
unlock services, some with the same mail in type service we
provide, and others that will ship you special unlocking
software and cables and allow you to unlock your phone at home
A mail in service is best,
because that saves you from having to become a cell phone
technician. We have the skills and experience to unlock
your phone, and we have more advanced equipment than is
sold to you for an 'at home' unlock. Best of all, we test
our unlocking with our six way unlock test - something you
probably can not do yourself. You don't want to
discover, the first time you try a foreign SIM in a foreign
country, that the unlocking didn't properly work for all types
When you get your phone
unlocked back from us, there are no surprises and no problems.
You can confidently use it, everywhere. This is why you
should choose us.
You can either unlock your
Treo yourself (option one) or have us do it for you (option
Option 1 - Unlock your Treo 650
With this option, we email
you special software and you can then unlock your Treo yourself.
You'll need a Windows compatible PC and an internet connection,
plus the USB to Treo connecting cable that came with the Treo
650 and the synch software that came on the CDrom with the Treo,
and which you probably already have installed.
This is very convenient and
saves you having to be without your lovely Treo 650. But,
paradoxically, it costs slightly more than sending the Treo to
us due to us having to pay a royalty for every unlock code we

How Long Does it Take if you
send your Treo to us
We have two service options.
With our regular service, our promise is that we'll
unlock your Treo 650, 680 or 750 and have it on its way back to you within 24
hours of receiving it. We send your phone back to you (to
US and Canadian mailing addresses, only) via USPS First Class
Mail, with Delivery Confirmation, insurance, and online tracking for your
reassurance. If returning to an international address, we
send via Air Mail.
If you're in a hurry, or if
you do not have a US postal address, our
Express service may be better for you. We'll turn your phone around
the same day we receive it, and if there is sufficient time
between when a courier delivers it to us and their cut-off for
collecting packages, we'll have it shipped back to you that same
day. This could mean that there is less than 48 hours from
when you courier your phone to us to when you receive it back
Obviously you can choose any
speed of service you wish to get your phone to us. In most
cases, we recommend simple USPS Mail - it is reliable,
convenient, reasonably fast and inexpensive.
Note - you don't need to
send your SIM with the phone, so if you have a spare phone, you
can use your SIM in that phone while this phone is being sent to
us for unlocking.
Our Guarantee - Six Way Test
We test every phone we
unlock, using three different SIMs - the SIM you already had in
your phone, a SIM from a different US wireless service provider
than that which had locked your phone, and one from an
international wireless service provider from Europe (the costs
of the international calls are on our dime), to confirm
your phone has been fully unlocked. In each case, we both
make a call from your phone and place a call to the phone, to
ensure 100% functionality in all possible scenarios.
Assuming that your phone
tests as working when it is first received, we guarantee that it
will be fully unlocked. If we can't
confirm that your phone has been unlocked and works perfectly, we'll return your phone (of course!) and fully refund your
You don't have to worry if
your phone has been correctly unlocked or not. Our
guarantee and testing gives you 100% confidence.

Special Offer :
Recommended Accessory for your Treo
This is a SIM card
This backs up and copies the
phone book data on your SIM card. This means if you lose your
phone, you don't lose all your phone numbers. If you change from
one wireless provider to another, you can quickly copy all your
phone book with this unit from one SIM to the other. If you have
multiple SIM cards (eg a US card, a global roaming card, and
some country-specific pre-paid cards), you can copy your phone
book to all these different SIMs.
This $19.95 unit can be
purchased for $17.45, plus free shipping when purchased in
conjunction with any Treo phone unlock service.
Here is a review of the
