    Your Alt key not working should have no connection whatsoever to the phone being locked to a carrier (you aren't talking about a password lock, are you?).

    What kind of shop is this?

    So when you text are you able to get numerical numbers when you use the alt key?


    While holding the alt button down are you typing:

    M-E-P-P-2

    are you not getting a pop up window to enter the unlock code?

    So if your alt key is not working, are you able to type numerical numbers on your sms messages and emails?

    Now if I'm reading your verbage correctly you just said M-E-P-P.

    If your alt key is not working you would be typing M-E-P-P-T or did you miss the T?

    Are we correct on this?

    If the shop sold you a phone with a dead ALT key, I'd be having a little chat with them right about now. Unlocking your phone will not bring your ALT key back to life.

    ^^He's not trying to bring back his alt key. He just wants to be able to unlock the phone and he needs the alt key to be able to proceed to that action.

    You're still not answering my question about the alt key in general. Are you not able to use any of the alt key functions such as numbers and punctuations while typing any type of messages?

    Receive calls?

    Is your phone on a password lock or are you trying to unlock it to be able to move to any GSM carrier?

    Then You have a hardware issue. get rid of the phone there is no reason to have a blackberry that doesn't have a functioning alt key. It's like having a phone without a battery it serves no purpose.
