I'm currently waiting (12days so far )for a subsidy pin from TMobile to unlock my iPhone, 4 does anyone know what to do with it , how do you use it? I've watched the U tube vid but it only tells you how to apply for the pin and not what to do with it ?
Thanks
Bob

With iPhones you don't normally use the subsidy pin. They tell Apple to unlock the phone and next time you sync it will unlock it.

I think you should probably just contact them again...I wouldn't be surprised if they've just ignored your request because they don't do subsidy pins for iPhones. I find that sometimes the online chat people are more useful than the ones on the phone. It usually pops up a live chat box on the left side of the screen when you go into the contact us page. Tell them you've been waiting 23 days to get your phone unlocked and they will probably try to get a quicker response.
Also, have you tried putting a different sim in your phone to see if they did unlock it and just didn't bother telling you? It will probably want you to connect to iTunes or activate if it is unlocked.

Thanks but I e mailed them on day 20 the reply was the subsidy pin had been applied for on the 1st [july] and it would be sent in 10days, just get the feeling they are making me wait for a month for no reason , o2 unlocked my 3g within 2 days

Yes eventually ,had to keep ringing them+ e mailing I think in the end it took about 34days!
I didn't get any notification from T mobile I just kept trying the phone on I tunes ( with a different sim in) and one time I tunes told me the phone was unlocked, I don't think much of T mobile !!!
