    If it is locked to a European T-Mobile Carrier, you have to contact them to get it unlocked. T-Mobile USA cannot help you.

    It is very possible, as another member here had a T-Mobile Hungary Phone that was in process of being unlocked (he was sending money for unlock fee IIRC)

    Go to settings, general, about and tell us what firmware you have (3.1.2 or 3.1.3). If you have 3.1.3 you'll have to wait until 4.0 is released in June as there's no current unlock. If you have 3.1.2 go to
    www.blackra1n.com
    and download the file for your OS. Run it and follow instructions on this guide

    You need to unlock your phone using this third party software your self.

    What firmware are you using on that phone?

    If you'd be interested in trading, I have a spare 3gs iPhone I would trade.

    Hey, I know this has been pretty much solved, but I wanted to chime in since I'm in the middle of going through with an unlock that if you ARE dealing with T-Mobile in Europe, they SUCK. They lost my unlocking fee after I wired it to them for two months (don't ask how thats possible), and I am still trying to work with them, I just said forget it and sent the phone with someone I know to Hungary because I got impatient, hopefully THAT will get it unlocked.
    tl;dr, T-Mobile sucks

    If its a 3G it isn't worth a trade lol.. I'm hoping you mean 3GS

    I have 2 different ones. One White and One Black 16GB 3.1.3/5.11.07 BB unlocked via BlackSn0w RC2

    Both have full US Warranty and work flawlessly.
