    Cingular and they claim they are working on it, but its been 3 \weeks and
    they lost the info and resubmitted the request.

    Re: Sony Ericsson t616 unlock code

    Supposedly Cingular tech area can provide unlock codes, its just a matter of
    the incompetatant customer svc reps getting the request correct. I want to
    use this as a travel phone next month. The customer service reps are ill
    trained and some of the calls are apparently handled by off shore call
    centers.

    Re: Sony Ericsson t616 unlock code

    FYI,

    Cingular does have the unlock codes...and they provided it late this
    afternoon.

    Since they absorbed the ATT Wireless company, they also handle tech support
    for these issues. This was verified with SE TECH Support before I went the
    Cingular route.

    I am amused by your comment (With that kind of attitude it's not surprising
    you're having problems.)

    I am aware SEricsson tech is not part of Cingular...AS I stated, I contacted
    SE Tech Support as a point of reference before I went back to Cingular.
    I provided the IEMI number to Cingular and they have a database the tech
    department used to locate the unlock 16 digit code.
