    Instructions to use unlock code for BB

    Advertisement



    I called ATT customer svc to get the unlock code for an 8700 I'm giving to a friend. Several days passed
    and no email. Long story short they sent it 3 days ago. I dont have it and it possibly may have gotten nt to my spam file and deleted. They said they couldn't send the email to me again but gave me the code over the hone, but with very sketchy instructions. Any link for the proper directions to input an unlock code for an 8700. Also do I need my friends SIM card in the phone when I do this or will mine work. Dennis

    Yes you do need a "foriegn" sim card in the device to unlock it
    How to SIM Unlock the device:
    1. Go to the "Tools" screen
    2. Select "Settings"
    2. Select the "SIM Card" option
    3. Type MEPPD
    4. It should then display a list "SIM, Network, Network Subset, etc..."
    5. To select "Network" type MEPP Alt-2
    6. It should then ask for the code
    7. Enter the unlock code

    Post back with any questions and if it gives you an error stop. Too many attempts will lock you out.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Is the unlock procedure the same for Tmo or any other carrier? Thanks
