Cell phone subsidy code

Anyone know them without having to pay? I have a Motorola V551 locked onto the AT&T network and when I stick in a Cingular SIM card is asks for a subsidy code. I have heard that once this is entered the phone is unlocked to any SIM or any carrier. Anyone know the code or dealt with this before?

Re: Cell phone subsidy code

Do some Google searching. Some phones can be unlocked by punching in a code/procedure, some have to be unlocked using software/data cable.

You'll be able to find out at the howardforums, but you have to pay.

Yup. And it's called unlocking, not subsidy code.

Re: Cell phone subsidy code

the motorolas Vxxx series need to be flashed to unlock them...that means data cabled.
