    Hi, i purchased a unlock code from one of the vendors on here. I sent the info in and the next day was sent my unlock code. Well, im down to 5 tries and not sure what to do. I sent the vendor a email for support, but in the meantime, i was wondering if there is a way to reload the operating system to get it back to 10 tries. Its a curve on the Bell network. Thanks

    Unfortunately there is no way to reset that. Once you have 0 tries left the only way to unlock it would be physically.

    I suggest not to try again until you resolve things with the vendor you purchased the unlock code from.

    wow lucky you, 5 left is decent at least. i used the free code generator(available from one of the threads here) which were all wrong 9 times till i had one chance left. then after some research i paid 3 bux for a code and voila i was saved on the last attempt.

    i was uber stressed typing in the 10th and final code

    the code came back literally within 5 seconds of me pressing the submit payment through pay pal.

    i was pleased

    As said before, there is very little you can do yourself.

    I believe software can be used to reset the counter however. BlackBerry themselves can also do it, but your best bet is a local phone unlocking shop.

    The best thing to do however it wait to resolve things with the vendor. They should be able to verify the code for you and inform you the specific unlock code you need.

    We have recently changed the amount of codes we usually send to customers to avoid people using unlock attempts needlessly. Now we just send the NCK and the SPCK, which would be the only two anyone would ever need anyway.

    Hope that helps.

    Actually there is a solution for 0 tries left, its not a software fix, its a sim adaptor that you sandwich between the sim and the phone, it doesnt reset it back to 10 tries but you it allows you to use any sim.

    heres a video of it in action

    Software can be used to reset the unlock attempts counter which can be found online. Alternatively, a phone shop that provides an unlocking service may be able to help (although this will cost more to do).
