    Hello,

    I bought a blackberry q5 which is locked to EE on ebay

    I have an EE sim so never needed to unlock.

    Now my friend want to borrow for her vodafone sim card.

    I can see on ebay many unlocking suppliers.

    My questions is :-
    Should I unlock the phone without the sim, with the EE sim or with the vodafone sim?

    Are eBay unlocking codes safe?

    Thanks

    I have heard good and bad about unlocking services on eBay. I prefer to use an established service where I'm able to check feedback. The last device I unlocked was using blackberrycodesource.com. Fast and no fuss. Other members here have reported the same.

    Hello,

    I have used "http://freemyblackberry.com/" a few times in the past ; some for BB10 devices and a couple of times for BBOS devices. They are fast, not too expensive, and trustworthy. (On top of that I think that they are Canadian which is a bonus)

    They will email you right away with a code - within about 12 hours I think - and you should be just fine.

    Thanks to both who replied.

    Can I unlock it without a SIM card in the phone?

    Hi

    I just ordered on blackberrycodesource.com based on your recommendation.

    I will post back as soon I get the code and whether it was successful

    Just got email from blackberrycodesource.com They gave 2 unlock codes (8 digits and 16 digits) It makes me nervous as I am not sure what one to use?

    I have 10 attempts left and keen not to make a mistake!

    Use the 16 digit code.

    The 16 digit code did indeed work. It was absolutely nerve wracking as it was not possible to spend time to check and double check it!

    Thank you all for your advice!

    Having the IMEI is fine, MEP not required. I'd suggest you give blackberrycodesource.com a shot.
