BlackBerry is locked



I have a pre-paid blackberry which locked. The provider said that it is not locked and they

asked BB for a code to unlock the phone. The only problem I have is that it could take 2 weeks.

I just sold my phone. How can I fasten this procedure BB.

Re: BlackBerry is locked

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


From your post, I am guessing you are asking about the original carrier MEP lock, which while in place prevents use of the BB on any other carrier. As such, refer:

Your only option to speed up the process is to pay a service to provide you with the unlock code.


Good luck!
