    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~you should not have to have any sim card in the pearl to unlock it, or any cell phone for that matter.

    Pearl instructions - Can be done without a sim card inserted

    To Unlock:

    1. While on the home screen, click the "blackberry key" on keyboard, then select "options".

    2. Choose "Advanced Options".

    3. Select "Sim Card"

    4. Type m e p p 2 to display the dialog box asking for the unlock code (Press the Alt + 2 key to get the number 2) ( you will not see text appear on screen while typing )

    5. Input the SIM Unlock code

    6. Press in the trackball in once

    then you are done...

    hope it helps.

    Cheers

    In step 4 the code is MEP2. On SureType BB's you have to press the O/P key twice since it's in MultiTap mode.

    The carrier of the device or a 3rd party unlocking service -- did you read this thread? It was all mentioned above.

    BlackBerry 8800
    For the device to display the software version, select "Options" then "About"
    Step Action
    1 Insert Cingular SIM into device
    2 Power phone on and Turn off the radio (Turn Wireless Off option) VERY IMPORTANT.
    3 Select "Options"
    4 Scroll down and select "SIM Card"
    5 Type "MEPD"
    6 Type "MEP2"
    7 Enter the Unlock Code
    8 Press enter
    9 Reboot device. Device is now unlocked.

    This is from the email I got from Subsidy Unlock Request when I requested the unlock code from Cingular. Took about 24hrs to get, they said it would be a week.

    You can purchase it from an online store. They can be as cheap as $20 for Cingular/AT&T/T-Mobile or as much as $60 for some worldwide carriers.
