Hey, guys, do you know if it is possible to unlock Captivate if, for example, I am already in Russia, not in the USA? if 3rd party unlock comes out (and, well, for example, if I have an AT&T sim card in roaming)

I called in again today, and this time took it to the stage where I have a case number, but was told in no uncertain terms there is no Location I-9 (or if there was, it's somewhere near Roswell, New Mexico), and no department to escalate this too. They couldn't even find any reference to the fax number in Giz's instructions.

I'll wait for the "sorry, talk to us in 10 months" email, and see if having a case number in the system helps. I suspect that if I just send a fax out at this point, nothing will happen.

I followed giz's instructions and sent a fax and it did go somewhere (Rosewell, New Mexico perhaps). Haven't heard anything yet, but maybe because it's the weekend. No harm in trying it.

You guys are Canadians?
Since Giz's guide said you gotta be a NON us resident, so it wouldn't work for me? (US Citizen)

This is BS... Giz over here, isnt even an ATT customer and he gets a code, I sign up for 2 year contract and they wont unlock me?

I guess i'll just have to harass them on their customer service line...

AMAZING!
Guys, do you remember "unlockitnow.com?"
Remember how they told me and one another member that they'll be shipping usb / software to unlock the phone?
Guess what? It arrives today. At first I open the envelope and thought it's a joke, since the cd slot is empty. Instead! There comes a sim thinggy.

1. Align the unlock SIM with the SIM card you will be using.
2. Insert the aligned SIMs in your cell phone SIM compartment.
3. Switch cell phone on and it is ready for use.

I used a tmobile sim along with that unlock SIM and it works perfectly!

So, make an order with unlockitnow.com and they'll offer you the "usb + software", confirm your imei and say yes and wait for 7-20 days for it to arrive. I ordered it on 7/23 and it arrived today!

So it's basically one of those "TurboSIM" thingies? You must ALWAYS use the unlock SIM with your SIM? Or is it a one-time-use and it unocks it, unlock-SIM-not-needed-again?
