Re: HOW TO UNLOCK BLACKBERRY BOLD 9790 AFTER EXCEEDING 10 TRIALS

I don't understand, if you weren't aware it needed an unlock code, why did use a wrong one ten times?

 

After the ten attempts have been used, you must get RIM to unlock the device.


There are two routes, and only two, to achieve this.

* IF your device is in warranty, contact your service provider technical support. Tell them you have this issue which needs to be escalated to RIM level customer support. I'll warn you that most carrier technical support people will first assume and think you are referring to a device security unlock, and you will need to convince them otherwise and explain clearly what you need. THEY will not be able to help you because the carriers themselves cannot unlock a device which has had the MEP code attempts depleted, and should (and you will need to ask) to have the case escalated to RIM level tech support.
* If your device is out of warranty, contact RIM direct. See the Contact Us information from the website: http://ca.blackberry.com/contact/ The options you want to select to speak to BlackBerry Customer Care are 3 (for inquiries, orders, billing, e-RMA etc) then 5 (e-RMA and Out of Warranty).

Make sense? Good luck.

Kenny, scroll up & read the post before your own. That, or purchase a MEP unlock code from a trusted vendor. Good luck.
