Locked BB Torch

Hi everyone, purchased a mep code, but the phone does not prompt for it.  Have done the whole mep, mep2, meppd and mepp2 and it does not prompt for the mep code.  The mep provider says that means the phone is unlocked.  But it is not unlocked.  Should I go out and buy another carriers SIM and give that a go?


Any advice would be welcome!
