    Re: Unlocking My BB Pearl HELP I have the steps

    Those are the steps I had and it worked for me. Are you making sure you type it like they said (pressing the P button twice?).

    These are the directions I got, which worked:

    1. Press the Menu key.
    2. Scroll to Options and press the trackball.
    3. Scroll to Advanced Options and press the trackball.
    4. Scroll to SIM Card and press the trackball.
    5. Type MEPPD
    6. Press the Alt key and type MEPP2.
    7. Enter unlock code.
    8. Press the Enter Key

    No, you have to get it from them. I know T-Mobile is good about giving them out - can't speak for Cingular. If you have been with them for a while, they shouldn't have a problem.

    If you can't get it from them, you can pay an online service to get you one for about $20.

    you must request an unlock code form Cingular guys after all you are paying them the bucks...secondly convince them that you are going out of nation for holidays and dont want to buy a new phone as you love this phone very much...tell them i am going India as In India (Cingular, T-Mobile, Vodafone does not work....) and they will provide you the unlock Code
