No, I don't mean your car..but if you're like me and got a smartphone (I got a BlackBerry recently off of Craigslist) you probably can't use it with your provider unless you enter an UNLOCK CODE for your device. It may be unlocked within your carrier, amongst other similar carrier SIM cards, but you will not be able to swap out one carrier's SIM card for another..meaning..if you're on T-MOBILE, you will not be able to swap that SIM card into a AT&T "locked" phone..make sense?
Okay, so after doing my internet homework and perusing the internet, YouTube and Google, I found unlocktotalk.com. I read into them and they are VERY LEGIT and are based in the good ol' U.S. (Salt Lake City)

Anyway, I gave them a shot and figured I'd get my unlock code tomorrow. After I paid for it (I used my PayPal account, but they take credit cards), I took a glance into my email and VOILA! My code was there in less than 5 minutes (probably less than that too!)
