    Hello shishimaru, and welcome to the Stacks. There are two ways of unlocking every BB; via the manufacturer and on the open market, typically via eBay. Normally, your provider will give you an unlock code if you have a Data plan with them and in good credit standing. There may be a nominal cost because the unlatching code, as its called, has to be obtained from BB, the service provider doesn't have access to these.

    If you don't have a Data plan with the primary provider, they will not (cannot?) unlock your device. Unlocking on the open market is dependent on how new the device is, so Homer Simpson can unlock a 72## series and a Pearl is either very expensive or currently unfeasible.

    Does anybody else have an updated input on open market unlocking for the pearl?

    Lightbulb Re: unlocking Roger BBP8100

    Thankyou very much,that's a great help.My BBP 8100 bought from oversea and has never been locked.My friend checked with the tech b4 purchasing. So, my other question is,will this phone be ok to hook with any service provider for the internet service? I know the sim card over here will work cos' it had never been locked.

    Yes: I did this in UK with Orange on a Pearl that had been locked to T-Mobile. All you need to do is get the BB data plan added to your account and they will send the service books to your phone. I had a problem with Orange in that the first 3 people I spoke to told me that they couldn't do this if the phone had not been bought from them.... eventually I got speaking to a techie, and once I had confirmed that the Pearl was completely unlocked there were no problems and all happened instantly.

    I have been told by Rogers Tech support and customer service that unlocking my 8100 will void the warrenty. ? Can anyone comment?

    Re: is Roger blackberry pearl 8100 unlockable

    That's a lot farther then I got with Rogers. I called a couple times and I emailed a couple times, and if the reaponce wasn't "what is unlocking" it was that I would have to talk with blackberry and they tell me to talk to Rogers.

    Canada sucks, our wireless makes me so mad.

    The funny thing is that I work for Rogers.

    Unlock codes are specific to your imei. Someone elses code would not help you. You may wish to contact a service like gsmphonesource if you wish to pay for the unlock code.
