Newb around here from the UK and needing help. I have just been given a 9360 which is hardlocked (MEP 0) and i need to unlock it.
I have read on here that there are a couple of sites in the US that can unlock it via remote desktop, but was wondering if anyone knows of a UK shop/site that can do this?
Failing that can anyone recommend which is the best US site to get this done?
Thanks in advance.

I do not understand the term hardlocked. A BlackBerry is either SIM locked to a single carrier or, it is unlocked and may then use any SIM card.
I have always got my unlocking done in the US. The UK guys are slow, expensive and often don't work.
As has been said, there is a whole section right here on CrackBerry just for unlocking. Many unlockers offer a number of free unlocks daily. Check it out.

The only way you can now unlock this phone is to have it connected to a PC and use software to unlock it. A search on Google of " blackberry unlocking via usb " gave me several results.
I have never tried this and nor would I. There is a very strong possibility that the phone could be bricked (totally wrecked) forever - unrecoverable by any means.
You should find someone who has done this several times and give the phone to them.
I know of nobody who does this although I am sure that they can be found in most UK towns and markets.
