    I do have an iPhone but my son was given a sidekick slider and he has come to me to get it unlocked. I was hoping that one of you gurus could help me(i dont even know where to get started)out without scalding me. My son is 8 yrs old and you would put a huge smile on his face if you helped him out.

    Best way that I have used on non iPhone devices is just to call your carrier and ask them. They will then walk you through the steps and you will be unlocked.

    Good luck

    normally you can call the company its tied to and then request to have the phone unlocked, but you might have to pay for it. By the way since when have 8 year olds need cell phones?

    And if calling the carrier doesn't work, this is a reputable site where you can buy the code pretty cheap.

    In my case, calling AT&T didn't work. They gave me an unlock case and a week later they rejected me. And I've heard people's stories who got their phones unlocked the day they got them. I've had mine for 7 months now! :mad:
