I just got myself a new Blackberry Torch (AT&T) from Best Buy. Since I do not live here, I would like to unlock the phone so I am able to use it back in my home country. I had a couple of questions:
1. Will the 3G work while I am back in Spain? My carrier there is Orange. Even if 3G doesn't work, the internet can work under GSM / WiFi, correct?
2. Can someone help me with all the steps required to unlock the phone. Do I need to have any SIM card inside the phone to unlock it? Does it have to be AT&T? What is exactly the process? I've seen many websites that sell you codes for $5 or so, but not sure what I need to do to actually unlock the phone and have it work in Spain.
Many thanks in advance!
OPTIONS > DEVICE > ADVANCED SYSTEM SETTINGS > SIM CARD
You will see the lock status. Only the second one should be active (Network).
Hi ,I got a Blackberry Bold 9700 from a friend who was trying to unlock this phone.
It seems that he was unable to get it done (He did it more than 10 times),now when I power up the phone it says that my current sim requires an unlock code.
From there I get this message "Enter Network MPE code (0 left): "
Is there any hope for this Blackberry Bold ?
I forgot to mention that Its An AT&T Blackberry .
Can this phone be unlocked still?
Thanks for any good advise
It can but you need to take it to a place that offers dm3 service.
I called AT&T to get my Blackberry phone unlocked and the rep told me that along with the iPhone they don't have unlock codes for the Blackberry Bold. Is this true? Anyone here that has gotten their Bold unlocked through AT&T? Please verify.
I had no problem getting one recently. Basic plan, new customer, only had the phone for about a month at the time. You just got someone lazy or not-fully-trained.
If that does not work you can get your unlock code from www.unlockmybberry.com
