I have an Android OS, HTC, G1 phone that is network locked to T-Mobile in the US of A at the moment.  I have read that you can get an unlock code from T-Mobile if you have had a T-Mobile account for more than 90 days, but as we in NZ don't have such a network option.

I was wondering if anyone might have any words of wisdom to help me unlock this device for use in NZ?

your best bet is probably to pay one of the phone unlocking websites that can do it for you

one site i was looking at recommended unlock-tmobileg1.com but its about $20 for a code (USD)

edit: also this guy was recommended http://myworld.ebay.com/blowfish06/ (only $12USD)
