I have a contract through a T-Mobile affiliate. My phone recently died, and I bought a new phone that is strictly T-Mobile. I'm now being told that I need to enter a Network Key. Any ideas on how to go about obtaining this key?
You will need to buy a unlock code from a online service like todayunlock.com or Google "unlock code T-Mobile sparq" and you might find other services that sell codes to unlock it.
Since you are not directly a T-Mobile customer you can not get one thru T-Mobile.
