Unfortunately the only one that can unlock a phone is the carrier it's locked to.

You can pay to have it unlocked quicker from a unlock site like GSMLIBERTY.COM or Cellunlocker.Net ect

You can check EBay as well there's usually unlocking for like $5 on there and it will be done usually in a day or two

Why is Wind asking you to wait 10 days for the unlock code? There should be no reason why they can't provide it to you alot quicker than that.
