Re: Unlock BlackBerry Torch 9800

[ Edited ]

I can do that.  :smileyhappy:  This is for a Torch, specifically:

 

1) Power on


2) Go to Options

 

3) Go to Device

 

4) Go to Advanced System Settings

 

5) Go to SIM Card

 

6) Press the following buttons: mepd - If 'Network' says 'Active', phone is locked and continue doing instruction Step #7. If 'Network' says 'Inactive' or 'Disabled', phone is already unlocked, no need to do Step #7 since prompt will not show for unlocked phones.

 

7) HOLD ALT and press: mep2 (Please note that you will NOT see what you type on the screen)

 

8) Now you will see a prompt asking you to enter the 'Network MEP code' which is the Unlock Code povided. This screen will show attempts remaining in parentheses, example: (10). If prompts reads: (0), phone is already hardlocked and entering correct code will still show 'Code Error, please wait..'. 

 

9) Enter the 8 or 16 digit unlock code and then press trackball to confirm (If you delay too long after entering code, screen will disappear and you will need to retype again) and your phone is now unlocked!

It is now hard locked, only RIM at the factory can fix this.

 

mind telling us what site, they should not have given you 8 codes to try.
