    MEP unlock screen did not appear.
    Entered MEPPD
    Caps locked and and entered MEPPD2.
    Entered MEPP
    Caps locked and entered MEP2
    Entered MEPP
    Caps locked and entered MEPP2
    Did all of above with no caps locked.
    Did all of the above after turning off and on
    my BB between tries.
    Did all of the above after removing/reinstalling
    battery and sim card between tries.

    MEP unlock screen did not appear.

    Changed to GSM / 3G2G
    Repeated above steps.
    Repeated above with Verizon SIM.
    Repeated above with no SIM.
    Phone says "No Valid Sim Card"
    at the very tippy top of the screen.
    Wiped battery.
    Tried again.

    Here's the display when I type MEPP:

    SIM Card: No Valid SIM Card

    Personalizations:

    SIM Unknown
    Network Unknown
    Network Subset Unknown
    Service Provider Unknown
    Corporate Unknown

    Should I call Tmobile and try to have my service moved
    from my Razor?

    hi
    i also had this problem too,but i fixed it doing this:

    1.- insert the verizon sim
    2.- turn off all the conections and network, including bluetooth
    3.- go to sim properties
    4.- type mepd in qwerty mode, withouth the caps activated, and then type meppd, or mep2
    5.- a screen asking you to type the unlock code will appear,
    6.- type your code
    7.- ENJOY!

    hope this help you.
    greetings

    ok, do you have predictive words, i mean autotext, if you can, disable it, that feature also give me trouble unlocking the storm, but don't type mepd and meppd or meppd2 with caps activated.

    also what i did was to type mepd several times, without taking pauses, and meppd several times until the code screen appeared.

    greetings

    From what I remember the connections have to be turned off and the non Verizon sim has to be installed.

    I've tried the VSM sim.
    I don't have auto text on.
    I've tried MEPP, MEPD, MEPPD, MEPP2, MEPD2, MEPPD2
    with caps both on and off.

    I tried entering MEP2, MEPP2, MEPD2, MEPPD2
    over and over again quickly with no luck.

    There used to be a post about unlocking thru
    the computer....but I guess the program was
    taken down by RIM
    Any one know of another ?

    You're talking about MML (MFI Multiloader). Apparently the version found on the internet either won't unlock the storm or it disables your media card somehow.

    Google it and follow the first link if you want to try it though.

    To unlock the phone, the original Verizon Wireless SIM card must be in the phone.

    1. Go to Options -> Advanced Options -> SIM Card
    2. Flip your phone to horizontal mode and bring up the keyboard. To bring up the keyboard, hit the BlackBerry button and press Show Keyboard.
    3. Type "MEPD" without the quotes. This will bring up the SIM Card screen.
    4. You should see a list of Active and Disabled SIM locking categories.
    5. This time type "MEP2"
    6. You should get a dialog that says "Enter Network MEP code (10 left):"
    7. Enter the SIM unlock code you got from Verizon and hit the Enter button.
    ***MAKE SURE YOU TYPE IT EXACTLY AS YOU WERE GIVEN IT*** If you type it incorrect 10 times, you will render your phone useless. If it doesnt work after the first 2 times, call Verizon back and verify the number you got is right.

    Now that it is unlocked:
    1. Pull the battery out and pull the Verizon SIM card out. Easiest way is with a pencil eraser.
    2. Put the new SIM card from either TMobile of ATT in and put the battery back in.
    3. When the phone finally boots back up go to Options -> Mobile Network
    4. Change the Network Technology to GSM/UMTS
    5. Hit the back button and wait as your GSM carrier is detected and the phone is registered with them.

    I do have the original verizon sim card in the phone when i do this. MEP2 doesnt seem to make the screen to enter MEP to appear.
    the problem is that the screen to enter the MEP code will not appear. After i enter mepd it says
    sim: disabled
    network: blocked
    network subset: disabled
    service provider: disabled
    corporate: disabled

    The reason it won't appear is because there is an invalid SIM card in the phone.

    ...
    I installed a new sim card from Tmobile...

    ...Phone says "No Valid Sim Card"
    at the very tippy top of the screen...
    quyen101: I was responding to the OP - it could be because the phone has never been activated or has been blacklisted as lost or stolen. (Mine says the exact same thing as yours except Network is "Inactive" not "Blocked.")

    I am also having the same problem, using the original vzw sim card and all. My SIM card says vodafone however, is this normal?

    My sim card says verizon/vodafone on the sim. Mines still not working.

    I am having no luck with this at all. For my personalization menu the status for everything reads: "Unknown" all the way down. Is this normal before unlocking the phone?

    I've even opened a pre-sales ticket with uniquephones.com seeing if they've encountered this problem.

    OK I figured it out. All I did was wipe with JL_Commander and reloaded the software (I reloaded official .75 for precaution) after this the mep2 screen comes up!

    You do not need the Verizon sim card you can use any sim card to unlock the Storm
    I do it everyday.

    Has anyone else had success with JL

    Hi ziroth,
    I cannot type in the MEP code.
    After wiping with jlcom and installing .75 the screen will still not appear. I removed vendor.xml from the app loader folder. Did you also do this? Thanks.

    Anyone know how i can tell if this phone has been locked due to too many incorrect codes?
