    Hey everybody, I recently was given a Blackberry Bold 9900 with a cracked screen. I am on Wind mobile which I know that this blackberry 9900 won't work on so I'm looking at unlocking it and giving it to my sister.

    I have unlocked GSM blackberry's but when I get into the Engineering menu to see my MEPID, it shows network = CDMA.
    The phone has a SIM card slot and it is identified on the back as a 9900.

    Are there any tricks/ways to determin what network this phone is locked to? I put in a BELL sim card and it said SIM not provisioned 2.

    Thank you

    When you turn it on you should get a splash screen from the carrier.

    For some odd reason, it doesn't show up :s

    You can probably look it up using the PRD number on the sticker under the battery.

    What does the help screen show for frequency bands?

    Hey guys, my vendor ID is 331....which I can't find who that is.

    Edit, so seems like 331 is Bell HSPA+

    Is there anyway to unlock the phone? I'm guessing this is only CDMA and won't function properly on the GSM network?

    Do a search on CB for unlocking services ( try : free this berry ) .

    Ask the questions there , they will give the best advice .
