Blackberry Curve Hardlocked from the date of Purchase

Hi I have a blackberry curve 9300 which is hardlocked from the date of purchase Jan 2011. Can anyone please help me out here. Either tell me a RIM Customer service so that I can ask them if they can help or advise me where I can get  it unlocked in Brampton, ON.

 

Please help I only came to know about it when I went to get it unlocked recently.

Re: Blackberry Curve Hardlocked from the date of Purchase

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Please see this helpful thread to start:

Even if you happen to have now the correct code, it is useless. Only the factory can now (legally) unlock your BB. Typically, I've heard that the cost of having BlackBerry do this for you will be greater than the cost of just buying a new one. But, you are able to ask them...see here:

Note, however, that this process will start with a fee...

If your BB was already MEP locked and you obtained it from a source that represented it as being able to be unlocked, then your recourse would be with the seller you obtained it from.

Good luck!
