Unlocking GSM phones in the Worcester area?
Does anyone know where I might get old AT&T Wireless unlocked in or near Worcester?

Since Cingular bought AT&T Wireless, and I upgraded and was 'moved' to Cingular as a customer, my account is Cingular and not AT&TW. Yet, within the network the carrier locks are still not unified, so my old phones are worthless with my new account. This is especially galling since I just had to send in my Treo for repair and while technologically I could just pop my SIM card into one of the other phones for now, because the damn things are carrier locked I can't. So I'm without until I get my Treo back. All three phones are Sony Ericsson - T68i, T226, and T616. I'd be interested in unlocking any/all of them. I already asked Cingular, they said they can only unlock Nokia phones, no joy on these.

You're probably aware of the following, but here goes...

The vast majority of Nokias are easily unlocked with a certain sequence of numbers input via the keypad.
The only way to unlock most SE phones, OTOH, is to find someone who has an actual data cable, & unlock station. (this is true for the T68i). A local Chinatown maybe?
