    You may want to call att and make sure the device is registered on their network as a bb. I know Verizon was having an issue with this for a couple days.

    there are 4 routines that need to be unlocked. just go to unlockusa.com and for $ 2 you can cross this off. host tables is under options>advanced. it should be filled with entries btw. go into your BIS acct to resend the service books.

    then you are not registered on the network, did you register the host routing tables? how old is the sim? is it an att sim or cingular?

    brand new sim that I just got from AT&T today.

    I registered the host routing tables, but AT&T says that they are not seeing the host routing tables being registered.

    Any idea why?

    start from sq 1 - do the below, register the routing tables and log onto bis - you should get an unlock code in ~1 min. set the type for not listed and put 9100 in the comments column. get moving I want to go to bed.

    This has been the verified way to unlock a 9100.

    Before you start, you MUST have a Sim Card (could be Active or Inactive) & turn OFF ALL wireless radios

    1. Press the Menu key
    2. Scroll to and select Manage Connections. Select Turn All Connections Off.
    3. Press the red end key or the Escape key to go back to the Home screen.
    4. Scroll to and select the Options icon.
    5. Scroll to and select Advanced Options.
    6. Scroll to and select SIM Card.
    7. Type MEPD Note: When typing in MEPD the letters will not appear on the screen. This step opens up the personalization on the device.
    8. Type MEP then hold ‘ALT” key and type number 2. Note: When typing in MEP ATL 2 the letters/number will not appear on the screen, this step open up the “Enter Network MEP” box.
    9. Enter the unlock code.
    10. Press the trackball (“Code Accepted should display)
    11. Press and hold the red End key to turn the handset off and then back on.
    12. Once the device has powered on, follow steps 1 & 2 and restore connections.

    so it seems like the pin is blocked.
    how do you unblock it?

    how are you coming to this? what are the first 6 digits of the IMEI? did you try a unlock?

    Go to Options, Advanced Options SIM Card. If the phone has no lock then it will say " SIM Card: Security Disabled" at the top of the screen

    There are two kinds of PIN lock. One is easy to remove and is caused by the previous owner not releasing the phone from the BIS or BES system. This can be cleared by the previous owner or by the carrier if you can convince them to do it. The other PIN lock is done by RIM and then you are screwed.

    Thanks for help , but don't worry about it.

    I realized when I turn on and off the phone (in very tiny, small text) it says "PROPERTY OF RESEARCH IN MOTION For Engineering Use only, NOT FOR SALE OR LEASE"

    I'm going to return it to Newegg and switch back to the 9700.

    Thanks for your help though. Sorry for the trouble.

    ok that is insane, newegg sold you a test device, just unreal. yeah, that will sort of stop you dead in your tracks. what are the first 4 digits of your IMEI?
    08-27-10 11:11 AM
  23. kurtla's Avatar
    seems that anything starting with a 0 is a test or internal unit. not good. I would raise you know what with egg about them selling you this device. there have been others on this board that have dealth with them and they seems to do ok so it makes me wonder if there are several sources that the devices came from. anyhow, it hopefully should come out with att soon so you will be all set when it does but wow what a waste of time.
