BlackBerry is locked

Hi,

 

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.

 

Regards

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!
