    Pin Code for Blackberry?! Help!

    Advertisement



    Heya guys, I am thinking of selling my BB Pearl,

    Atm i have an o2 simcard in their that works great so i decided to see if my sisters orange simcard wored in phone.

    When it turned on it had the keyboard lock screen and asked for a pin code with 3 chances to guess it.

    Would this be because the phone is locked to O2? or because i somehow have set a pincode because if its my pincode set i have a problem as i am looking to sell!


    Please help me
    All the best guys!

    What happens if you put the original sim back in -- all ok? If so check to see if your phone is unlocked

    1. On your BlackBerry, go to Options > Advanced Options > Sim Card.
    2. At that screen type MEPPD (for pearl MEPD for QWERTY) on your keyboard. A new menu will pop up.
    3. Look for Network in the list.
    4. If your device is "unlocked", it should say Disabled or Inactive. If it says Active, it's still locked to that carrier.

    it has Sim Disables
    Network - Active


    and all the others say disabled


    does this mean i am locked to O2 and only an O2 sim will work?


    yes the original sim (my one) works fine in it.

    Yes, your phone appears to be locked. My unlocked pearl shows DISABLED in the network field. If O2 will not provide an unlock code you can pay for the service.
