Re: BB Curve 9300 Locked

Hey ErichS,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for the question.


Does the BlackBerry Curve 9300 smartphone ask for an MEP code when the SIM card is inserted or does it just ask for your personal lock password?


Also have you tried to insert a different SIM card in the BlackBerry smartphone?


I look forward to your reply.

Re: BB Curve 9300 Locked

The phone just has a screen confirming Device locked

There is a option:-



Emergency calls



Unlock does not work -

Emergency calls has sub menu - police, fire etc. did not try any

Cancel - back to square 1


I took the phone to a service centre they reloaded software - all works again

- comes with a price of course


Thanks for your interest


Best regards
