    Problem with unlocking a T-Mobile Pearl 8100

    Advertisement



    I have an unlock code for a BlackBerry Pearl 8100. When I try to enter the code I enter the code I get enter network mep code (0 left)

    I've searched for a way to increase the number of tries. I found one for the old 7100 and earlier.

    Is there something that can be done like this for the 8100 or 8xxx series?

    Thanks!

    Moridar, I'm sure that you have instructions but, just in case:

    Unlocking T-Mobile Blackberry Pearl 8100
    Prerequisite: unlock code

    1) In the SIM Card menu, press meppd (Sure-Type is disabled)
    2) You'll see the unlocking level screen there you type mepp2
    *You won't see any text while you are typing either one of these.
    3) Enter the unlock code.
    ...but it sounds like someone has tried to enter a code 10 times and done it incorrectly all 10 and you're out of tries - could that be the case?

    Yeah that is the case. I have the instructions but nothing I can find for newer devices. I've searched and found a RIM app that allows me to increase the number of tries for an old 7xxx or earlier devices. This doesn't work on the 8xxx or higher.

    I 'm just wondering if I'm hosed... :P

    Mor, Who is the phone branded to - name on it? What I'm getting at is is it possible that a rep for that company happens to be a stacker and might be able to help you. I think that when you exhaust your number of attempts you have to go back to the company whose name is on the phone.

    I believe you are hosed, Did you buy the phone with 0 attemps left or did you put the code in wrong that many times?

    If you are going to take the time to respond... take the time to actually understand that to which you are responding.

    T-Mobile 8100 - I'm in Canada. So taking it back will be difficult.
    Unlocking for a friend. They submitted the wrong IMEI.
    I'm left trying to find a fix.

    The only way to really fix ot from my knowledge is to wipe the OS and reload it and resubmit with proper imei. Worse case scenario is to contact RIM.

    Reloading the OS gives your more attempts to unlock the phone? Are you sure

    I didn't think so but it would be great if it did! I was under the impression that, once you exhausted your number of tries, you had to "crawl" into the carrier for whom the phone was made and "beg for" them to help you.

    I've Javaloader the device and still nothing. It was the first thing I did. Is there a tool out there that flashes the ROM and clears the attempts field. Someone has to have tried...

    I've got a few contacts that know a little something about a BlackBerry... I'll ask them and see what they can do.

    with other devices, i've seen it done, they always say wipe and load the software and call the carrier back....guess it doesnt work for a blackberry.

    i would contact RIM's customer care
