    Unlocking Pearl

    Advertisement



    I am trying to unlock my phone. Tmobile gave me these instructions, cannot get past step #6 help! Nothing happens after I type alt + MEPPD2

    [FONT=Tahoma]Thank you for taking the time to contact T-Mobile. Below you will see the Instructions for unlocking your Blackberry 8100 Pearl device.

    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
    Note: When typing in MEPPD the letters will not appear on the screen. This step opens up the personalization on the device.
    6. Press the Alt key and type MEPP2
    Note: When typing in MEPP2 the letters/number will not appear on the screen. This Step opens up the Enter Network MEP code box.
    7. Enter unlock code.
    8. Press the Enter Key.

    Are you typing it in as though you're in "multi-type" mode? I think you have to do that.

    Are you holding down the ALT key while you type MEPP2?

    Also your post reads MEPPD2

    The instructions read MEPP2

    And the PP is for 8100 KB and takes into consideration the multi tap 9you phave to hit OP twice to get a P).

    On a QWERTY KB you only type MEPD

    Right. They tell you that they won't display but, for example, for the "P" I think you have to press the key twice. Also are you pressing and holding the alt key - I think that's what the instructions mean.

    I unlocked my 8120 but I don't remember exactly - I think I'm right on all of this.

    Holding down the alt button did it! You don't need to do multitap.

    Good. Glad you got it. Sorry I "remembered" wrong. I knew it wasn't too difficult because I managed to do it once.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~unlocking let's you use your BB with other carriers. So if I go to Asia, I can buy a sim at the 7/11 pop it in the back of my BB and make calls for a lot cheaper than if I used my full blown plan.

    pdkbxny - Welcome to Pinstack!

    Unlock codes will need to come from your carrier or a 3rd party service. These codes are unique to your phone and you cannot use someone else's code on your device.
