As a matter of policy, T-Mo will only unlock a T-Mo phone. If you but a
T-Mo phone on ebay they'll unlock it if the unlock criteria (length of
service, time since last refill, etc.) are met.
Apparently, T-Mo feels they have no right or obligation to unlock a
device originally locked by another carrier.
