Are you talking about one acquired while serving a term as a guest of the state or federal prison system?
If you're out, you'll have to send it into the company that provides these to the BOP (Bureau Of Prisons). For a price they will unlock it for you. They apparently have a locked-down firmware version on it that only they can over-ride.

This is hilarious. For unlocking, the forum is the last place you ever could get. You may need to search elsewhere about this though.

@ jimmyghd - What's hilarious is that you responded like this to a 7 month-old thread.
And all searching will do is result in the advice already given; to pay the fee to get it unlocked.

Here is a link on how to do this for anyone that comes across this.
PS: I know this is an old thread, but its the first one that comes up in google.
