    Unlock BB 8800, please help !!!!!!!

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone,

    I got an AT&T Blackberry 8800 with the Unlock Code but I do not know how to insert the Unlock Code to unlock the Phone (I am using T-Mobile USA). Are the Unlock Code and the MEP Network Code the same? Can anyone please tell me steps to go through to unlock my BB with the Unlock Code?

    Thank you very much,

    Hiep0sut

    When you got your BB unlock, didn't they give you instructions?

    1. Instruct the user to 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. (press the letter P ONLY once!)
    6. Press the Alt key and type MEPP2. (press the letter P ONLY once!)
    7. Enter your unlock code. (16 digits)
    Hope this helps, if not someone will be along shortly to help you.

    Thanks jgirly2, I bought the phone from eBay with the unlock code from AT&T. I am asking the seller to check the Unlock Code again, then I will try as you suggest.

    Process is the same for all BB's. Steps 5 & 6 were written for people on SureType BB's that don't understand how MultiTap works. The codes are MEPD and MEP2 but you have to hit the O/P key twice for the letter P in MultiTap.

    Thanks for your response! Couple more questions though;
    1. I got the phone from the AT&T user and he gave me the Unlock Code (I am using T Mobile). When I unlock the phone, do I need to insert Cingular SIM card, or any other SIM card (for example T Mobile)? I have looked at some topic and they said no need any SIM card when unlocking, but the instruction from Cingular said I need to insert Cingular SIM card when unlocking it; so just get confused.

    2. I kept on insert Unlock Code and it said "Error Code" so I am waiting for new Code. After 10 times enterring the wrong code, the phone will be permanently locked for AT& T, is it right?

    Thanks and really appriciate,

    As far as I understand, I should insert AT&T SIM card to unlock my phone which I don't have it with me. Does it need to be the exact original AT&T SIM card of the phone or it can either be any AT&T SIM card?

    Thanks guys, I made it. No SIM card is needed though. Just entered the Unlock Code and it worked.

    I was just going to drop in here and add that there is no need for any SIM card to be in the device for purposes of unlocking. Sounds like the OP already got that...
