    Unlocked 8700g from TMobile not working with Cingular??

    Advertisement



    I just bought an unlocked 8700g originally from T-Mobile and I wanted to use it with Cingular. When I put my Cingular sim card in it says SIM Card rejected. Is there anyway to check to see if the phone is unlocked. The person I bought it from sent me the unlock code that T-mobile sent them, can I try anything with that. Thanks for any help.

    Check this thread out. http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ock+blackberry

    It should have the info you are looking for. I am assuming the person did not enter the unlock code on the 8700g before selling it. It's fairly simple to input the code. Just use the info in that thread and follow the instructions. Good luck and congrats on your BB purchase!

    I know its silly but did you make sure the SIM was inserted properly? I have done this on more than one occassion. Also did you verify that the device was unlocked?

    Have you verified that it's unlocked? What does the SIM Card screen tell you when you type in mepd? It could be any number of things at this point.

    Entering Blackberry Unlock Code Instructions
    Model : All BlackBerry

    1 - From the main menu go to 'Options' / 'SIM card'.
    2 - While holding the SHIFT key, type mepd (on 8700 you don't have to hold shift)
    3 - You should now see the five locking categories listed.
    4 - While holding the SHIFT key again, type mep2.
    5 - Release the shift key.
    6 - You are now prompted to enter the Network MEP code (it will also state how many attempts left)
    7 - Enter the code
    8 - Enter Return/Enter
    9 - The device should now be unlocked
    When you do step 2, all the things should be disabled. If you see an enabled by one of the 5 categories, it is still locked.
