I couldn't unlock my IMEI thru Dell as my warranty is expired, and I'm waiting on Reddit and Twitter to get back to me. My IMEI can be provided upon request from official staff.
So do you have a Dell cell phone? Cause your tags say "Laptop" and this is not a computer shot. It's a cell service provider.
Where did you buy it from? If it is from a cell provide like bell, Rogers, etc..you have to contact them for the unlock code.
In Canada now the rules are they must provide the unlock code for free..
Public mobile can't help you with that unless it's a very old phone from years ago when public mobile sold phones and you bought it from them.
@RoXx0rBoT You should be able to find it out by dialling *#06# on your phone? What do you mean by imei locked? Can you use you PM cell phone or is it puk locked? Thanks.
It's a laptop, it has a SIM card tray installed in it from the OEM. Dell Precision M4800. Drivers are installed, just no clue how to get it to call or text #060#
@RoXx0rBoT which provider did you get the phone from originally??
You can contact the provider with your IMEI and they will provide you with the unlock code for free of cost.
chatting with an agent thought the providers website is probably easier option if they offer support through chat.
edit: nvm saw your post about the laptop
My warranty expired 3 years ago, and the WWAN card I purchased was from China. It was literally the ONLY one on all of the internet. Only paid $25. Maybe I could get into touch with the seller?

@RoXx0rBoT I'm not sure it will work.
Assuming it's unlocked and activated as I believe you would have the laptop with those configurations. If not it's just an empty slot with no configurations. You might need to install drivers as well.
You would have to contact Dell or check the Dell service code to the Dell support site to see if that feature is activated on your laptop.
Not sure if it would work for calling might just be for data...but the other issue you'd have is figuring out the band frequency of it to see if it's compatible with Public Mobile.
Best of luck on your experiment.
It quite certainly is an adventure in babysitting ahah
Dell International won't help, and the Dell Canada people don't have a listed phone number that will accept my call with my expired warranty. I've contacted the original seller from China and made 2 posts on Reddit as well as here to solve it ASAP
