    A co-worker bought his wife a pink razr for mother's day and got her old
    silver razr. He is on an older AT&T plan and thought he would be able to
    just put his sim card in the razr and be good to go. He cannot. He needs the
    unlock code for the razr and everyone wants to charge $20 for it. He could
    of course get a new cincular sim but he woudl lose his $10 a month AT&T plan
    because it is no longer offered. I realize that is not a lot of money but
    thought I would see if anyone would give it to me in this newsgroup. If so
    thanks.

    There is no way to 'give it to you'. Each and every phone has a unique unlock
    code based on the phone's IMEI.

    OK, so the obvious next question is this:

    What is the algorithm for generating an unlock key from a phone's IMEI?
    If you'll share that, I'll write a simple Java app that generates it and
    will distribute it freely.

    For the effort involved I would recommend paying the $20. The other option
    is to talk to the service provider the phone is locked to and see if they
    will give you the unlock code. If the contract has expired, or been moved to
    the other phone, they may be happy to help, if a little slow.

    Anyone who has managed to figure this out (I assume by reverse engineering) isn't telling.
    They're used the info to write their own code generators so they can sell the unlock
    service.
