    Re: Unlock Code for Blackberry 8800 on cingular?????

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ any speculations about the new "global" 8830 for Verizon? My question is: if you "unlock" (since it has GSM) could you use it on another US GSM carrier? They say you can only use their GSM network while traveling over seas. Speculation? Thoughts? Knowledge?

    They say you can only user is overseas because it doesn't support US GSM frequencies (read the specs).

    I'm sure it's also set up to only roam on GSM when CDMA isn't available.

    Re: Unlock Code for Blackberry 8800 on cingular?????

    I'm interested in unlocking 8830 (Verizon) for international travel. Love Verizon domestic service, but want to use VIP SIM card in Croatia for $.40 per minute instead of Vodafone at $2 per minute. Will this phone use a SIM card, and will the GSM portion be unlockable or is this a stupid question? Verizon is pretty unhelpful and says that if I manage to unlock the phone it will no longer be supported by Verizon.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~first of all the unlock instructions posted above have a major error the code you enter when you get to the sim menu is MEPD not MPED as posted above. The second code is MEP2 not MPE2. Second I feel stupid for all the questions I asked about unlocking my BB. The reason I could not see a pop up screen to enter my unlock code is because was already unlocked. I bought it on ebay and the seller did not know that

    I'm not sure anyone even has an 8830 yet to verify.

    Re: Unlock Code for Blackberry 8800 on cingular?????

    Greetings all,

    I was wondering if anyone here could help me with how to generate the unlock code for my 8800... It was simple to get to the prompt to enter the code, but the code that was listed earlier in this thread didn't work (as I assumed), so I'm hoping someone here can help me generate the one needed for my 8800.

    Thanks

    they are unique to your phone, you will have to go to a unlock service or call your service provider for it. takes a couple of days to get it .

    Would anyone care to recommend an unlock service? Something that doesn't cost an arm and a leg...

    Re: Unlock Code for Blackberry 8800 on cingular?????

    I just got mine unlocked today. Paid $20 to cellular locksmith co from ebay. The only thing that inconvenience me was the instructions given was wrong.

    5. Type MEPD
    6. Hold the ALT Key while typing in MEPD

    number 6 is wrong. It doesn't work. The correct one is to type MPE2. That's M-P-E-"2".

    Thank god for this forum or I would have been steaming.

    Re: Unlock Code for Blackberry 8800 on cingular?????

    OK - I am a little stumped.

    I have my unlock code - went through the instructions, and with my cingular sim in the phone, it works fine. Under Options>Advanced Options > SIM card - it says "security disabled" next to the SIM Card line. Under that, presumably, it has the SIM card ID.

    Here is where I am stumped. I put in a T-Mobile SIM card, and the phone won't regonize the SIM card. It says SIM card invalid. The Network will read T-Mobile, but on the radio it says SOS.

    My question is - is my blackberry unlocked or do I have to do something else?

    Thanks!
