    for free? You have to do a testpoint, which involves taking the phone apart, hooking up its little motherboard to the battery and to a computer, then jumping two points on the motherboard while running a special peice of software that is proprietary motorola software, so I can't link to it. Go to youtube and search for V3 testpoint and you'll see what I'm talking about. There's a great forum for this www.modmymoto.com, which I'm also a member of under the same name.

    If you want to pay $10-$20 for it, you can get an unlock code from many websites and/or ebay. WIth that method, you get an unlock code within hours of payment, put the other networks simcard in the phone and it'll ask for a subsidy code, just put the unlock number in there and it's unlocked instantly.

    I'm not sure this is legal. We're looking into this now. This thread is subject to being closed.

    It's legal to unlock them, and many times you can get the unlock code free from the service provider. Tell them you're going overseas and want to use a pre-paid SIM card.

    I already got warned for something illegal once on here (honestly didn't realize it was, should've known though), so I'm not making that mistake again :)
