Re: locked or unlocked 8800

Sorry the link won't work for you. This is what it is:


How do I determine if my BlackBerry is "unlocked"? From BlackBerryFAQ

To determine if your BlackBerry is "unlocked" for use on carriers other than for which it is branded:

1. On your BlackBerry, go to Options > Advanced Options > Sim Card.

2. At that screen type MEPD (see note below) on your keyboard. A new menu will pop up.

  • If your BlackBerry has a SureType keyboard (71xx and 81xx devices) you will need to double-tap the P, so the actual keys entered become M E P P D.

3. Look for Network in the list.

4. If your device is "unlocked", it should say Disabled or Inactive. If it says Active, it's still locked to that carrier.

Re: locked or unlocked 8800

What if all the fields have "UNKOWN" filled into them (instead of enabled or disabled).  I bought my 8830 Second hand and want to know if it's already unlocked.


Was going to purchase code, but noticed that after I entered MEPE nothing popped up.

My whole menu reads "unknown" under the this menu that pops up after you press MEPD.


Anyone have any info?  Thanks!
