I just got a v180 with a prepaid plan (in the us from t-mobile). The
seller told me it has to be unlocked to be used in Europe. Any
suggestion on how to get it unlocked? I have read I have to wait some
time to be able to do that. Is this true?

I just called customer service. I told them I was going to use it in
Europe and that it doesn't make sense to buy a tri-band phone if you
can't use it overseas. They said I have to wait 90 days and there is no
way around this. Was the representative misinformed or does it make
sense to you.

Not if you're going to Europe. T-Mobile will unlock it in that
situation. (Otherwise you'll have to wait until you finish your
contract.)

Call customer service.

It's the carrier's decision, so the rep was probably telling you the
truth.

Do a search on the news or the net. I found a guy who do it locally
(montreal canada) with a kind of "black box" that he plug into the phone.
It worked well for 20$ CAN. You can probably find a shop or individual who
do it for you. Compare the prices as some charge as much as 75$ to do it.
It'supposed to exist some software but Idon't find any that work and you
need a data cable.
