    Advertisement



    Hi All,

    New user to this forum and and HP Ipaq convert!

    Just wanted to say that i had to unlock my T-Mobile UK phone this cost Ł15 (not to bad)

    The settings they sent accross were completely wrong and it was down to this forum that i was able to do it! nice guys!

    setting i used were;

    [FONT=Arial]1/ type meppd - in SIM CARD menu from advanced options[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]2/ then type mepp2 (you need to actually hit shift and put the number 2 in)[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]3/ the unlock screen appears and you enter the code then hit return.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial][/FONT]

    Re: unlocking PEARL uk - oh my god!

    Hi - just got a T-Mobile UK locked Pearl via Ebay. Don't suppose you know the code number to unlock it (after entering the codes in your post)? Also, do you know if this also "releases" the handset from the T-Mobile BIS? I want to use Vodafone, but their BIS site does not recognise the PIN and IMEI number combination as being Vodafone. Any help gratefully received!

    Code numbers are tied to the individual handsets PIN/IMEI. His code will not work for tours.
    Sorry!

    I was a complete noob when it comes to BB, however when I bought the Pearl and got the unlock code, it took me no more than 2 minutes to unlock the phone. It's as easy as ABC.

    Thanks for this guys. I'll find somewhere that does this as I don't think TMO UK are too cooperative when it comes to giving out unlock codes - or perhaps I am being uncharitable!

    Re: unlocking PEARL uk - oh my god!

    Is there a service which can unlock the Pearl without having to go to T mobile? I paid full price of handset, not obligation from T mobile, from WirelessToyz of USA
    Now I am in India, and trying to unlock the same, I am not able to do that
    T-Mobiles's account not and blah blah. In fact I have a bill and receipt, even then T-Mobile do not want to help me out.
    Looks like I am stuck

    Bet you could find someone on eBay that could do it. Just depends if you want to pay. Here in the states, on craigslist.com I found someone that charged 65USD.

The best they could do was up to 28 working days after receipt of a letter and clearing a cheque for Ł15. All independent unlockers I contacted (a lot!) didn't have up-to-date software.

    So although a bit pricey, well worth it!!

    Can you tell me where did you find the code to unlock Blackberry Pearl from T-Mobile Uk?

    Gsmphonesource can't give me the code and I don't find a Shop online...

    Thanks again for your help

    My Pearl was T-Mobile UK and GSMPhonesource.com unlocked it! Don't know why there is a problem - just had another look at their site and didn't see anything different. This link takes you to the service you need http://www.gsmphonesource.com/reunbyimfora6.html. Hope this all works out - let me know if I can help further
