Search Google for a BlackBerry unlocking service.

Buy unlock code.

Enter code on BlackBerry using directions they provide.

The guides above are ok however they are for entering the code. I take it you want to know how to get the mep code to work out your personal unlock code? If so then you need to read this info from your phone either using a cable or via the menu. There is a step by step guide to each one on the link below.
