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.

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

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

That doesn't mean anything.

The original owner of the phone has to unlock it

if they meet the requirements.

Tmobile owns Metro PCS.

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.
