unlocking Pearl help
To those of you that have unlocked a TMo pearl. I paid to get an unlock code as I am on cingular. Below are the instructions I received:
1 Insert SIM into device
2 Power phone on and Turn off the radio (Turn Wireless Off option) VERY IMPORTANT.
3 Select "Options" THEN SELECT ADVANCED OPTIONS
4 Scroll down and select "SIM Card"
5 Type "MEPD" (multitap means this will be typed in [M] [ER] [OP] [OP] [DF])
6 Type "MEP2" (multitap means this will be typed in [M] [ER] [OP] [OP] [TY])
7 Enter the Unlock Code
8 Press enter
9 Reboot device. Device is now unlocked.
When I get to step #4, the phone reads "SIM Card:No Valid SIM Card" at the top. It will not let me type/proceed to step #5.
Anyone have any ideas why or what to do?

Figured it out...it doesn't actually prompt you to enter anything. you have to enter it "blindly"
