Can't Unlock Blackberry 9800 - PLEASE HELP

Hello all, I am new to this site, but a HUGE Blackberry fan.


I just recently upgraded to the 9800 Torch,     I figured that it would be a great Birthday gift to myself.


The phone is currently a AT&T model, I am trying to unlock it for FIDO/ ROGERS



When I took the phone to be unlocked, the guy said It couldn't be unlocked.... Smiley Sad   



It says that there are no more tries



"ENTER Network MEP code (0 LEFT)"



I guess the guy who had it before me taught he could put random codes and it'd work.


Is there anyway of fixing this or am I totally screwed ???  


Any help would be greatly appriciated,  thanks in advance.....

You'll need to contact a reputable unlocking company like www.cellularhorizon.com.  The only method left for unlocking is for them to have the device in hand and connect it to a special box for unlocking.  An mep code isn't going to work anymore.
