    MEP unlock tries down to 0

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I have my Pearl's MEP unlock tries down to 0. It is locked to T mobile UK. I have tried calling technical support but they have no clue what they are doing. Any advice?

    was is like that when you got the device? or did you put in the wrong code and it counted down to 0? i'm fearful that that device may be locked for good

    i thought MEP code had to do with the sim card and when it reached 0 the sim card was rendered useless and you had to purchase a new sim card..

    BlackBerry 6xxx 7xxx: ie 6230, 7100, 7290 etc.. Unlock Code Instructions

    How to Enter Unlock Codes on BlackBerry 6xxx 7xxx: ie 6230, 7100, 7290 etc..
    Select Options menu on BB.
    Now you select SIM CARD menu. To be able to see this you have to type this on the keypad on phone : (TEXT WILL NOT APPEAR ON THE SCREEN until you enter the unlock code)
    Type 'MEPD' for all models except 7100 in which case in case use 'MEPPD'.
    Usually u should see "active" NET lock. Now in order to disable this lock type 'MEP2' respectively 'MEPP2' if phone is 7100 and will appear a dialog asking for code. NOTE: You must use the "alt" or "shift" key to enable numbers so example would be: m-e-p-"alt key"-2 Now you should see the place to enter your net unlock code.(if not, you didn't type in mep2 or mepp2 properly.)
    Here you must enter the "NET Unlock Code" that we gave you.

    hope this helps...pretty much dude you're down to the last time you can try and unlock your SIM then the next step is to unlock your network...since it's t-mobile call them and they can give you unlock codes

    Just reset your phone. You will be able to enter unlock codes again. Make sure to backup all your information!

    It happened to one of my customers. I believe I did a hard reset and then I was able to enter the code no problem. I did this months ago, when the Pearl first came out. I don't see why they would've changed the firmware to prevent this.
