    Unlock Code

    Advertisement



    Anyone know the unlock code for the 7290? I got the unlock code for the Pearl, but it didn't work on my 7290(predictably). I am not 100% sure the code I have works for the Pearl because I obviously couldn't test it, but if anyone with a Pearl wants to try it, PIN me and we can give it a shot and see if it does indeed work.

    You only get one unlock code per line of service... Ut's a code based off of the phone's IMEI... Do you have a second line?

    Re: Unlock Code

    hey dude, the unlock also known as the MEP code is unique to the phone IMEI and PIN number. Try this, i posted it a week ago.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~The only sensible and cost effective way to have a BB unlocked is to ask the service provider you currently use. If you are trying to unlock a bb you bought on eBay or whatever to use on your chosen network then you are gonna getno help from the original vendor,hence the reason why remote unlocking for a bb costs 10 times what it does for a simple Nokia. Its market forces at work.

    Re: Unlock Code

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I was mistaken about this. Instead of there being a universal code for each model or series of device, the unlock code is generated by each individual device's IMEI #, so the code is different for every 7290. If you are in good standing with your mobile service provider, had service with them for a decent period of time, and purchased the BB from them, they will usually give you the code for your unit for free. That's how I got mine. I just called T-Mobile and they e-mailed me my unlock code. Otherwise you have to pay a company to give you a code for your device. Sorry about the confusion. If you get your code and need to know how to enter it, just let me know.

    Re: Unlock Code

    hamlet, the unlock code is specific to an individual Handset

    You'll probably need help from a unlock specialist. Expect to pay somewhere around $40 - $50.

    Re: Unlock Code

    call your service provider. most providers allow one phone (by provider, must be branded by that same provider) every 90days. I just submitted my 8100 Pearl over the phone to get it unlocked. they said within 24-72hrs ill recieve an email with instructions on how to unlock the phone.

    So first call your service provider and see what they can tell you. Hopefully they will give you the info. and its free too.

    PIN me if you need any more info

    If you have an 8700 locked to another network, and you have a Vodafone account and want to use the handheld on Vodafone, then you can get an unlock code from your provider for free.

    People, it doesn't matter. It is one code per phone, you can't share, you can't use it on another phone or transfer it anywhere. EACH AND EVERY PHONE HAS IT'S OWN CODE.

    I'm sure there's a vodaphone section towards the bottom of the forum main page.
