how to unlock a bb storm 2

this may sound pathetic but I got this phone from my sister who is in Canada, a BB storm2 which is locked from verizon wireless and would want to know how to unlock this unit for free, I know there are sites that can help but they charge some amount of money and I do not have a credit card to pay, is there anyway that I can have this unit unlocked free of charge???please help. I am currently living in the Philippines.

Thanks again. hope someone is super nice enough to help me.

Re: how to unlock a bb storm 2

No, it is not possible to unlock it for free... unless you were a Verizon customer, with a current account with Verizon.

 

If you need instructions on how to unlock your BlackBerry for use on a
carrier other than the one to which it is branded, check out BlackBerry
Unlocks

You will need a credit card.

 

and read this link for instructions.

I've unlocked many phones with this site, they offer instant service and same day processing as low as $1.99. Take a look at

How do you do this if you do have a current Verizon account?

You call Verizon and ask them to give you the unlock MEP code.

Re: how to unlock a bb storm 2

Hi,

 

well unfortunately there is not free trusted site. Most likely you always end up with wrong unlock code. Typing invalid unlock code to a BlackBerry phone can permanently block your and hence make your BB completely useless forever. You should consider spend few $ on trusted sites like FastGSM.
