I got a 6800 from T-Mobile for the pay as you go service and was told after 90 days they would give me the unlock code so I could use it with other services. Well, I cheated a bit and bought an unlock code from ebay and plugged it in. I think it worked because the phone said it was unlocked, but when I went to use it with Rogers, here in Canada, I found that some of the menu items were missing and I couldn't put in the parameters to use the internet services that Rogers offers. Anyone know if there would be another way to unlock the phone to get the menu items to show up? Thanks.
I guess that makes it kind of impossible then, doesn't it. Like to be able to use the phone in Canada and the states both, but won't be able to I guess. Any way to do it? Who would do the flashing on it?

I like this answer!! Good choice of words! next time some n00bs ask, I'm gonna tell them this as the reason why it cant be done easily.
