I bought The Hydro C6530 on Ebay 2 weeks ago. I cannot activate my phone because i am living abroad. I asked the MetroPCS to get the unload code but they told me that I have to activate my phone at least 90 days. what I should do ? is there any other way to unlock it ?

There's nothing Tmobile can do to unlock the phone if you're not a user.

Also Tmobile only unlocks phones that they or an authorized reseller sells

and eBay isn't an authorized reseller.

Unlock your mobile wireless device

If you purchased your device from T-Mobile or if you have a T-Mobile authorized device please follow the steps outlined below to determine your eligibility to receive an unlocking code for your device.

But there is a T-Mobile label on the box. Does it mean the phone is from T-Mobile ? and there is a new MetroPCS sim card inside the box.

That doesn't mean anything.

The original owner of the phone has to unlock it

if they meet the requirements.

Tmobile owns Metro PCS.

so...... the only way to get the unlock code is activate the mobile at Metro PCS.com and wait 90 days, right ? 😕

Correct or you can buy one from a 3rd party seller on the Internet.
