Re: Can the New T-Mobile Motorola V195 Cell Phone be Unlocked Yet?

I found this while searching how to unlock my T-Mobile Motorola v195.

It seems all the new Motorola cell phones are unlockable without something
called testpoint and without dissassembling the cell phone.

It seems Motorola decided to make all new phones unlockable so the new
recommendation is to never buy Motorola phones if you wish to use them
outside the United States.

When I called T-Mobile to ask them to unlock my new cell phone they
said I shouldn't have bought it from them if I wanted to unlock it.
